Devin Thomas is Showtime


(Rucker/MCT)


What can one learn about new Redskins WR Devin Thomas from the Web? Bad quote:

"I always knew I had the ability," Thomas said this week between stops working out for NFL teams. "I just needed the opportunity....It keeps that chip on my shoulder. A lot of guys tried to write me off....Now, all of this has happened so fast. It's been really wild. It's really going from nothing to something."

Decent nickname:

While junior wide receiver Devin Thomas was busy fielding questions from the media about his four catch, 156-yard performance that included a touchdown last Saturday against Bowling Green, senior defensive end Ervin Baldwin made the receiver who was almost impossible to stop do just that. As Baldwin was exiting the press trailer, he exclaimed "showtime," referring to Thomas' nickname. The interjection prompted several questions aimed at the Spartans' new big play threat.

"That nickname, I got it back in little league," the 6-foot-2, 218-pound wide receiver said. "Making plays, go out there and it's Showtime."

Highlight-looking highlights:

Kanye personally favors Mario Manningham, but it's all to the goodie.
