Another second-round pick from the 2011 draft class finds himself on the wrong side of the 53-man roster Saturday: The Dolphins have released running back Daniel Thomas, according to the Palm Beach Post. Thomas joins Lions' 2011 second-rounder Mikel Leshoure among those players now looking for work.
Thomas, who played at Kansas State, never lived up to expectations in Miami. He started just three games in his three-year career and never rushed for more than 581 yards in a season. The 26-year-old leaves the Dolphins with 365 carries for 1,312 yards (3.6 YPC) and eight rushing touchdowns. Thomas also caught 42 passes for 291 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
