Bryan Thomas' blink-and-you'll-miss-it absence from the New York Jets is over.
Thomas acknowledged he wasn't thrilled by the unplanned mini-vacation."I was pissed off," Thomas said Monday in the Jets' locker room, via The Associated Press. "There's no other word about it. Just pissed off. Mad. That's all I could say about it."
In addition to signing Thomas, the Jets cut cornerback Donnie Fletcher, defensive lineman Marcus Dixon and offensive tackle Dennis Landolt. They also re-signed wide receiver Patrick Turner, who was waived Sept. 11.
"I can't hold any animosity," Thomas said. "This is where I always wanted to be, and this is where I want to stay. I want to retire as a Jet, and that's my focus."
Of course, a lot has changed in the two days Thomas was on the street. No word if he had any comment on the supernatural storm cloud now parked over Florham Park.
