Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Still working out kinks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas' apparent lack of chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill was a disappointing takeaway from offseason practice sessions, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Thomas was traded to Miami this offseason after catching just 30 passes for 281 yards and four touchdowns in nine games for the Jaguars last year. While that marked Thomas' worst production since his 2011 rookie year, it was also his second straight underwhelming campaign since Jacksonville signed him to a five-year, $46 million contract. Of course, that deal was the reward for back-to-back 12-touchdown campaigns in Denver, which put Thomas at the forefront of fantasy radars at the time. In reuniting with then-Broncos offensive coordinator and now-Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, Thomas seems to have a decent chance of rebounding this season, but indications that he's yet to establish a consistent rapport with Tannehill raises some concern whether that will happen.

Dolphins' Julius Thomas: Red-zone threat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins plan to use Thomas in the red zone much more frequently than Jacksonville did, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Adam Gase coached Thomas when he scored 24 touchdowns over two seasons with Denver and plans once again to take advantage of his skills in the red zone. While a return to those glory days would seem unlikely, Thomas should reach paydirt more than the nine times he did with the Jaguars over the past two seasons.

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.
