Minnesota Vikings Sign Josh Thomas

In the wake of the Jabari Price suspension, the Minnesota Vikings have decided to use their last roster spot on another player at the cornerback position.

The team has just announced the signing of cornerback Josh Thomas. He was a fifth-round pick of the Dallas Cowboys in the 2011 NFL Draft, and has spent time with the Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets, and Detroit Lions as well.

I'm not sure if this is a bad sign or an omen or something, but in the process of looking up who exactly Josh Thomas is, I found this story. It appears that, not long before his release from the Jets, he managed to get his playbook stolen. I'm no expert or anything, but I think that's generally considered to be a bad thing.

With camp getting underway tomorrow, Thomas isn't going to have a whole lot of time with the Vikings' playbook before the festivities get started in Mankato. I'm not sure how much of a chance he has to make the roster, but he gets a free trip to Minnesota, if nothing else.
