Thomas is inactive for Sunday's game at the Jets. There was some thought the project tight end would see a handful of snaps in a meaningless game, but that won't happen and the Bills will now have the offseason to see if the former quarterback has what it takes to be an NFL tight end.
Thomas signed with the Bills on Tuesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. The former quarterback turned tight end will head to Buffalo after spending the season on the Lions' practice squad. Thomas will provide emergency depth at tight end behind Charles Clay and Nick O'Leary.
The Giants waived Thomas on Saturday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. Thomas lost is battle with Ryan Nassib to backup veteran Eli Manning under center. The 25-year-old was acquired by the Giants off waivers in June. He went 7-for-12 with a touchdown and two interceptions in three preseason games.
Thomas was claimed off of waivers by the Giants on Friday, Jordan Raanan of NJ.com reports. Thomas was cut by the Dolphins on Thursday after spending the 2015-16 season on their practice squad. He now heads to New York, where he will likely be the number three quarterback behind Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib. The Giants waived fellow quarterback B.J. Daniels to make room for Thomas on the roster.
The Dolphins signed Thomas off the practice squad and to the active roster Wednesday, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. It looks like the Dolphins may have been worried that another team would poach Thomas from their practice squad so they signed him rather than risk losing him. Teams like Baltimore, Houston, and Dallas could all be in the market for a young QB to tutor. Thomas won't see any playing time with Miami but rather carry a clipboard behind Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore.
