The report said Thomas "was particularly impressive in that regard" Thursday.
"Our backs are going to line out and catch balls," quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. "When you have [backs] who have good hands and can make people miss, it adds a whole other dimension to your offense."
Thomas was drafted by former general manager Jeff Ireland. Under the new regime, "Thomas is going to have an interesting time making the team in training camp with his primary advocate gone," the report said.
Thomas has averaged 3.6 yards per carry in his three seasons.
Miller rushed the ball 17 times for 73 yards, finishing with one more yard than he had in the teams' last meeting, despite five fewer carries. He added one reception for 4 yards, to finish with 16 more touches than Thomas, who finished with no yards on two carries.
The Dolphins split the carries between the two young backs this season, though neither excelled in the timeshare. Thomas finishes the season with 406 yards on the ground with six overall touchdowns, while Miller scored just twice but had 709 yards to lead the team.
