The Bears have signed receiver Devin Thomas to a one-year deal, the team announced Wednesday night.
Thomas was a second-round pick of the Washington Redskins in 2008 out of Michigan State, where he had an eye-popping junior year, wit 79 catches for 1,260 yards and eight touchdowns.
In the NFL, though, he's mostly been a special teams player; he has 43 career catches for 468 yards and three touchdowns.
In the NFC title game against the San Francisco 49ers, Thomas had two fumble recoveries, one of them in overtime to set up the game-winner. He also returns kickoffs, although he hasn't scored a touchdown and has a modest career average of 24.1 yards per.
He is 6 foot 2, 221 pounds.
