Professional careerEdit

Thrash played for four seasons with the Redskins before signing with the Eagles again. After three seasons with the Eagles, including two as their leading wide receiver, the Redskins traded a 5th round draft pick in 2005 to the Eagles to bring him back to Washington. The pick later became defensive end Trent Cole.[1]

The Redskins released Thrash on June 12, 2009 after he failed his physical.[2]
