Free agent defensive lineman Solomon Thomas is heading to Las Vegas.

Thomas, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raiders, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Although Thomas has never lived up to his status as the No. 3 draft pick, he has shown flashes of promise at times in his career with the 49ers.

Last year Thomas suffered a torn ACL in Week Two and missed the rest of the season, but he is expected to be ready to go for the start of the 2021 season.

  1. Remember when everyone lauded Lynch as a genius for trading down with Bears from #2 to #3 so he could draft this guy? At least Trubisky led the Bears to a couple of playoff seasons!

  2. So that’s the #2 (Trubisky) and #3 overall picks of that draft class who are pretty much unmitigated busts. Yikes.

  3. Well, at least he’ll finally get a chance to play exclusively inside. No idea why the niners tried to make him an edge. Sounds like there’s no guarantee he’ll be healthy by camp though.
