Posted October 11th, 2016


Duke Thomas wasn’t a free agent for very long.

The former Texas cornerback was signed the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad on Tuesday, a little more than a month after he reached an injury settlement with the Houston Texans.

Thomas was a three-year starter for Texas, making 35 starts in the defensive backfield. He finished his career in 2015 with 173 tackles, six tackles for loss and seven interceptions. He signed with the Texans as an undrafted free agent.
