Should the Chiefs take a chance on Terrell Thomas?

I know his injury problems are a huge red flag, but he has the ability to come in and be our #1 corner. When healthy, he has proven to have solid ball skills (12 picks and 45 passes defended in 60 games played), while also causing seven forced fumbles, three sacks, and two blocked kicks. I think he could be had for a one year deal, around $3 million, as a way for him to prove himself before looking for his last multi year contract of his career. If anything, we get yet another experienced corner who can step up and make a tackle (almost an average of five combined tackles per game). I think this would be a solid idea for the Chiefs, as it gives them a versatile corner who could possibly play the slot. The way I see it, the Chiefs could go with: A) Thomas and Smith on the outside, Owens in the middle, and allow Coop and Gaines time to compete in practice while training for the future. B) Platoon Smith and Cooper, depending on how they are doing. C) Possibly move Thomas to the slot, and start Cooper on the out (probably my least favorite idea, it's hard enough to validate Smith and Coop as a #2 corner). Just another late night idea, curious to see what everyone thinks.

Just some more stats about him, at the combine in 2008, he measured in at 6'1 202 lbs. He ran a 4.45 40 yard dash, with a 30.5" vertical jump, 10'3 broad jump, and 14 bench presses.
