4:32pm: The Seahawks have reached an agreement on a contract with free agent cornerback Terrell Thomas, reports Adam Caplan of (via Twitter). Caplan had reported earlier in the afternoon that Thomas was drawing interest from the team, while Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports added that he thought a deal was done (Twitter links).

Thomas, a former second-round pick, spent the first six seasons of his NFL career in New York with the Giants. However, he was sidelined for two of those years – 2011 and 2012 – after suffering consecutive ACL injuries. The 29-year-old returned to the field in 2013 and was active in all 16 games for the Giants, making seven starts and logging 588 defensive snaps, though he expressed concern in June that teams were wary about signing him because of his injury history.

By signing in Seattle, Thomas, who reportedly worked out for the Patriots and Raiders earlier in the offseason, will be reunited with his former head coach at USC, Pete Carroll.
