Thomas had 14 tackles (seven solo) over 10 games in 2018. Thomas signed a two-year deal with the Cowboys last March and played a minor defensive role through the first five weeks before suffering a foot injury. The 27-year-old returned Week 13, but by that point rookie Leighton Vander Esch had already carved out an every-down role. Thomas is under contract for 2019, and his deal only results in a modest $2.4 million cap hit. However, his roster position isn't overly secure, considering the Cowboys would only incur $300,000 in dead cap money if they released him, per Spotrac.com.
