The Steelers and Thomas agreed to a contract on Wednesday, TribLive.com reports.
Thomas, a former quarterback in college, was most recently waived by the Rams. The undrafted rookie currently sits last on a depth chart that holds 11 wide receivers, so his chances of landing on the final roster are slim at best.
Thomas was waived by the Rams on Friday, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Thomas was waived along with fellow receiver C.J. Germany to make room for a pair of defensive signings. Thomas was seen as a long shot to make the team's final roster and will now be on the open market for the second time this offseason.
Thomas signed with the Rams on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Thomas will be used as a receiver by the Rams, but this is still a stretch in Los Angeles, just as it was in New Orleans. However, he does have the speed and versatility to make it as a receiver or defensive back in the league, having posted a 4.30 40-yard dash at his pro day in Georgia. If he does make the 53-man roster, he'll likely start off in a special teams role.
Thomas was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.
Thomas did not figure to have much of a shot at making the Saints' final roster. The undrafted rookie out of Georgia Tech will now look for a more advantageous situation elsewhere.
