Thomas (undisclosed) was released by the Bills on Monday. Thomas spent the 2016 season on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury but was expected to be back for offseason practices. He's never made a Week 1 roster and hasn't played in a game since the 2014 season. He'll be looking to get a shot with a team in training camp.
Thomas didn't play in 2016 after being placed on season ending injured reserve in training camp with an undisclosed injury. While Thomas' injury is unclear, the team has given no indication that he'll miss any time once offseason practices begin. Thomas is under contract with the Bills through 2017 and will be looking to make an opening week active roster for the first time since being drafted in 2013. He'll most likely compete for a depth role in the secondary and a special teams position.
The Dolphins have signed strong safety and Redskins castoff Phillip Thomas. Thomas was drafted in the fourth round by Washington in 2013, but proved disappointing after losing his rookie season to a foot injury. He played in eight games a year ago and contributed to 27 tackles.
A disappointing start to the career of strong safety Phillip Thomas has been punctuated by his release from the Redskins. The fourth-round pick in 2013 lost his rookie sesaon to Lisfranc surgery and was hampered by hamstring issues much of last year, during which he made 27 tackles. But he was buried on the depth chart to start 2015 and was deemed expendable, per the Washington Post.
The Redskins will sign safety Phillip Thomas to the active roster prior to Sunday's game against the Vikings, ESPN.com reports. Thomas was unable to survive final roster cuts during the preseason. He suffered a season-ending foot injury during the previous preseason and has yet to appear in a regular-season game.
