Update: Sunday, 12:04p. Bleacher Report has taken down its original story quoting Philip Thomas. B/R believes the response by “Thomas” came from a fake Facebook account impersonating the safety. Below is the piece The Fizz ran yesterday concerning the original story and the quote in question. It certainly seemed bizarre at the time, considering it brings up the possibility of Thomas playing professional baseball. The Fizz, however, stands by this item: “A source close to Thomas tells The Fizz the safety has looked into playing elsewhere, and a potential landing place could be Delaware.” That is information culled separately from the Bleacher Report story.

The slide of Syracuse football continues off the field. Phillip Thomas has been suspended for a year due to violations of athletic department rules. Thomas, a key member of an already ailing secondary, will miss the remainder of this season with the Orange. Thomas told Andy Pregler of Bleacher Report he actually may look into turning pro or playing baseball.
“I say the drug test reports (are) false, and I will be heading to the NFL Draft. Also, may do a little something with the MLB. I am friends with DeSean Jackson, and I already talked to him, so I know I’m going to be fine.”
