Lions Sign Black Mamba De' Anthony Thomas

The Lions have signed highly coveted utility receiver/Returner De' Anthony Thomas aka "Black Mamba."
The guy was an absolute legend in college at Oregon and had a pretty good career in the NFL as a kick returner. Has the potential to be a great addition to the CFL as his game is tailor-made for a CFL field. With him and Lucky Whitehead back to return a kick, opposing teams could be better off punting out of bounds, and second guessing long field goals rather than taking their chances with those guys.

I’m glad he didn’t sign with Calgary considering all the red jerseys he’s worn

'Black Mamba' sounds like another killer end for the Lions. Is a 'shutdown defense' in the works? They'll need it if they don't start signing some killer offensive linemen. That side of the trenches could use an upgrade or two before Nathan Rourke takes over. He'll be much more effective if he doesn't have Adam Bighill sitting on his chest all game.
