De'Anthony Thomas returns punt 80 yards for a TD

It looks like DAT is back to his old Oregon tricks in the NFL preseason.

The Kansas City Chiefs took a shot on Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas in the 2014 NFL Draft, hoping he'd bring some of his big play ability to the NFL after it didn't materialize with a similar player in Dexter McCluster.

Didn't take long for RUNDAT to happen.

Thomas caught the punt near the sideline around the 20-yard line, broke a tackle and then quickly took the ball to the opposite side of the field, showing off that track speed to beat everyone to the endzone for an 80-yard touchdown return.
