Thomas (undisclosed) has been waived off IR by the Colts with an injury settlement, independent NFL journalist Aaron Wilson reports. The 2018 sixth-rounder saw action in six games last season between the Cardinals and Patriots, catching one of his two targets for a three-yard TD. Now that he's been waived off IR, Thomas is free to catch on with another team as a depth tight end option.
Thomas (undisclosed) reverted to Indianapolis' injured reserve list Wednesday, per the NFL's official transactions report. Thomas appeared in six games between the Cardinals and Patriots last season, in which span he secured one of two targets for a three-yard touchdown. The nature of his current injury remains undisclosed.
The Colts waived Thomas (undisclosed) with an injury designation Tuesday. The extent of Thomas' injury is unknown, but he will revert to the Colts' injured reserve if he clears waivers. He has spent time with the Patriots, Texans and Cardinals during his first three years in the league.
Thomas signed a reserve/future contract with the Colts on Tuesday. The tight end has become a bit of a journeyman through his first three years in the league, logging stints with the Patriots, Texans and Cardinals. In the 2018 season with the Texans, Thomas recorded 20 receptions for 215 yards and four touchdowns. However, in the two seasons since, he has only logged two receptions.
The Patriots removed Thomas from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and subsequently waived him, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Thomas was claimed off waivers from the Cardinals earlier this season to shore up the Patriots' depth at tight end. Before landing on the list, he was consistently a healthy inactive, so the Patriots' decision to move on from him isn't surprising.
