Thomas Inks First Pro Deal
Eagle Springs native and North Moore graduate Cam Thomas has reached an agreement on his first professional contract.
The San Diego Chargers signed 6-foot-4, 335-pound former UNC defensive tackle to a four-year deal worth $1.98 million that includes a $191,000 signing bonus, according to published reports.
“I’m just here to do a job and help win games. That’s basically it,” he said, according to the Chargers’ website. “And my job is to clog up gaps and help make plays when it’s my time.”
Thomas is listed as a nose tackle in the Chargers’ 3-4 defense. He was a fifth-round draft pick of the Chargers after recording 83 tackles, nine for a loss, and three-and-a-half sacks in his Tar Heel career.
He made 23 tackles last season, scored a touchdown, blocked a kick and was credited with three quarterback pressures. He earned a Senior Bowl invitation following the season and sacked Oklahoma State quarterback Zac Robinson during the all-star game.
