Orlando, Fla. – Former Georgia Tech standout receiver Levon Thomas has signed a two-year contract with the Orlando Predators, announced on June 7. The move was one of four roster transactions the Predators turned in on Thursday.
Thomas played with the Yellow Jackets from 2001-04, where he played in 42 career games. As a senior, Thomas was the second leading receiver on the team – catching 32 passes for 354 yards and three touchdowns. He was the team’s leading kick returner and finished the season with more than 1,000 all-purpose yards. In his career, he totaled 66 receptions for 928 yards and six touchdowns. He had five plays of 40 or more yards in his career, including three plays of 50 or more yards.
Following college, Thomas signed as a free agent with the Indianpolis Colts. He spent the majority of season on the Colts practice squad, but was active for one game. Thomas went to camp with the New Orleans Saints last year.
“Levon is an explosive receiver, who has great hands and runs accurate routes,” Head Coach Jay Gruden. “We’ve had a hard time covering him in practice and I am anxious to see him in game conditions.” Thomas has spent the last 11 days with the Predators as a member of the practice squad.
