Tra Thomas Returns to the Nest
Tra William Tra Thomas gave a press conference to announce his retirement. He spent 11 years with the Eagles as well as having short stints with Jacksonville and San Diego.
When I think on his career, I’ll always remember Tra as a pivotal player in the Andy Reid era. He was a strong, durable, and ever-reliable force on the left side of the line that helped the Eagles maintain such a high caliber level of play through most of the 2000’s. While it’s not a glorious position, it’s one that unquestionably can shape seasons.
If you don’t believe me, look at what happened to the Rams when Orlando Pace was injured in 2006 and the entirety of 2007. It wasn’t pretty….seriously.
So nothing but respect from us here at the Wooder Cooler, Tra. To be honest, you were the man. Thanks for everything. Good luck.
