Breaking: Bengals signed former Rams WR Mike Thomas to a one year deal

Former Southern Miss wide out Mike Thomas has a new home!

Mike Thomas the former Rams draft pick has a new home.

We are learning the former University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles wide out that was drafted by the Rams in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft has signed with the Bengals on a one year deal.

The 6010, 189 pound wide out has been a solid player for the Rams. He really impressed Sean McVay last year.

“He’s done a really good job,” McVay said. “Mike is a guy that I’ve always been a huge fan of, extremely tough competitor, he’s got great speed, I think he’s catching the ball really consistently. Eric Yarber and Liam Coen – our receivers coaches – have done a great job really with that group as a whole. In a lot of instances, you talk about Brandin (Cooks), Robert (Woods), Cooper (Kupp) – Josh Reynolds now has really ascended to where you’re talking about him. And then I think Mike Thomas has really separated himself as one of those guys that stands out with the way that he’s consistently played.”
