Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Accepts smaller contract with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas restructured his contract to eliminate $12.6 million, essentially turning it into a two-year, $12.2 million deal with $7.5 million guaranteed, The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Thomas wouldn't have been traded if he wasn't willing to restructure the five-year, $46 million contract he signed with the Jaguars in March of 2015. He was still dealt for a pittance -- a seventh-round pick -- but the willingness to renegotiate at least helped him land with a team that looks like an excellent fit. In addition to having a clear need at tight end, the Dolphins are coached by Adam Gase, who was Thomas' offensive coordinator with the Broncos in 2013 and 2014. The 28-year-old tight end had 24 touchdowns in 27 games between those two seasons, highlighted by a 65-788-12 receiving line in 2013 (14 games)

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Says injuries have all healed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas said his back, ankle and finger injuries have all healed, the Palm Beach Post reports. "I can tell you that it's fortunate for me that I don't have any lingering deficiencies from the injuries," Thomas said. "I don't have any handicap injuries that will hold me back. They've all been able to heal up. The fortunate part is it's always something new. It's not chronic."

Injuries played a big role in the disappointment of Thomas' stint in Jacksonville, limiting him to only 21 games in two seasons. Now reunited with Dolphins head coach Adam Gase -- who served as the Broncos' offensive coordinator in 2013 and 2014 -- the 28-year-old tight end won't have to learn a new offensive system as he seeks to regain his peak Denver form. Thomas had 24 touchdowns in 27 games between the 2013 and 2014 seasons, serving as the top red zone target in a high-flying Peyton Manning offense. Scores won't be so easy to come by in Miami, but Thomas should emerge as one of Ryan Tannehill's favorite targets if he can simply manage to stay on the field. There is plenty of competition for targets from a talented wideout group featuring Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Leonte Carroo.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Passes physical with Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (back) has passed his physical with the Dolphins, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Although his trade from Jacksonville to Miami won't take effect until the new league year starts on March 9, Thomas won't be a stranger within the offensive scheme used in his new locale. Under the instruction of offensive coordinator Adam Gase in 2013 and 2014, Thomas posted 12 touchdowns for the Broncos in both campaigns, helping him land a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jaguars in March of 2015. Gase will soon be embarking upon his second offseason program with the Dolphins, only this time he'll have a familiar face to introduce to quarterback Ryan Tannehill. If fellow tight ends Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims both depart in free agency, Thomas will assume top TE duties and seek a bounce-back season.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Heading to Dolphins via trade
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thomas (back) will be traded from the Jaguars to the Dolphins in exchange for a late-round pick in this year's draft, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Thomas managed just 76 receptions for 736 yards and nine touchdowns in two seasons after signing a five-year, $46 million deal with the Jaguars in 2015, but in joining the Dolphins, he'll be reunited with coach Adam Gase, who served as his offensive coordinator with the Broncos in 2013 and 2014. Thomas scored 12 touchdowns in both of those seasons, emerging as a top fantasy tight end along the way. Although having Peyton Manning as his quarterback obviously helped his stock significantly at the time, Thomas should like his chances of rebounding in his new setting, where he could cement himself as Miami's starting tight end given that Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims are both potential free-agent departures this offseason.

Jaguars' Julius Thomas: Could join Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Thomas (back) could join the Dolphins in a trade for offensive tackle Branden Albert, who is visiting the Jaguars on Monday, NFL.com reports.

Thomas has fallen flat of expectations since signing a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jaguars in 2015, but with the tight-end needy Dolphins committed to moving on from Albert and his hefty salary, and the Jaguars in need of a new left tackle, a potential swap seems to make sense for both parties. With both Jordan Cameron (concussion) and Dion Sims hitting the free-agent market, Thomas would have a clear path to starting tight end reps in Miami, where he'd be reunited with head coach Adam Gase, who helped engineer Thomas' wildly successful 2013 and 2014 seasons as the Broncos' offensive coordinator. While that change of scenery could help Thomas' fantasy outlook, his proposed move to the Dolphins could be contingent on how Albert's visit with the Jaguars goes Monday, making the situation worthwhile to monitor.
