    Thomas worked out with the Seahawks on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    The Seahawks continue to explore options at running back with a handful of their own backs landing on injured reserve last week. Thomas last played for the Vikings in 2018, where he recorded 30 rushing yards on eight attempts across five games.

    It was the first tryout for Thomas following his reinstatement after serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The 24-year-old suited up in just five games for the Vikings last season, rushing for 30 yards on eight attempts and hauling in two of four targets.

  • Roc Thomas: Gets reinstated

    Thomas (suspension) was reinstated to the NFL on Tuesday, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.

    Thomas completed a three-game suspension for a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. It'll be interesting to see if he garners any attention on the free-agent market now that he's eligible to sign with a team.

  • Roc Thomas: Reaches injury settlement

    Thomas (suspension) reached an injury settlement with the Jaguars on Monday, Phillip Heilman of The Athletic reports.

  • Jaguars' Roc Thomas: Back on IR

    Thomas (suspension) reverted to the Jaguars' injured reserve after clearing waivers Sunday, according to the NFL's official transaction log.

  • Jaguars' Roc Thomas: Heading to Jacksonville

    Thomas (suspension) is expected to sign a contract with the Jaguars on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Thomas was recently let go by Minnesota, after he was suspended three games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. He'll head to Jacksonville where he faces plenty of competition for snaps behind lead man Leonard Fournette. Considering his three-game suspension, Thomas shouldn't be considered a lock to make the roster. In five games with the Vikings as a rookie last season, Thomas logged eight carries for 30 yards in addition to 59 snaps on special teams.

  • Roc Thomas: Let go by Minnesota

    The Vikings waived Thomas (suspension) on Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Thomas was in line to compete for a depth role with the Vikings heading into the 2019 season. It's unclear whether his three-game suspension is what made him the odd man out in Minnesota's running back room, or whether the team is simply confident in Ameer Abdullah and Mike Boon as depth options behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison. Thomas played in five games with the Vikings as a rookie last season, logging eight carries for 30 yards in addition to 59 snaps on special teams.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Draws three-game suspension

    Thomas has been suspended for three games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

    Thomas, who was sentenced to three years probation in May after pleading guilty to a felony charge of marijuana possession, can practice with the Vikings during training camp and play in the preseason, but he'll sit out the team's first three regular-season games before becoming eligible to return to the field Sept. 23. Thomas is in line to compete for a depth role in the Minnesota backfield (behind Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison) along with Mike Boone and Ameer Abdullah.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Facing legal trouble

    Thomas was charged last week with fifth-degree possession of marijuana, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The incident stems from January, when officers executed a search warrant on Thomas' apartment. It's expected that he'll face punishment from the league.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Sticking with Minnesota

    Thomas signed a reserve/future contract Wednesday with the Vikings, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Thomas finished the 2018 season on the Vikings' practice squad after appearing in five games for Minnesota earlier on in the year. He'll now get the offseason to compete with Mike Boone, Ameer Abdullah and anyone else the team might bring in to compete for a depth role behind Dalvin Cook in advance of the 2019 campaign.

  • Roc Thomas: Joins Vikings' practice squad

    The Vikings are signing Thomas (hamstring) to their practice squad Thursday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Thomas was waived by the Vikings earlier this week to make room for Ameer Abdullah on the 53-man roster. The undrafted rookie will rejoin Minnesota as a practice squad player. While it's possible that Thomas could carve out another depth role, it seems unlikely that the undrafted rookie will play significant offensive snaps this season.

  • Roc Thomas: Waived by Minnesota

    Thomas (hamstring) was waived by the Vikings on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Thomas was waived by Minnesota to make room for former Lions' running back Ameer Abdullah. The undrafted free agent rushed eight times for 30 yards and zero touchdowns with the Vikings this season, and caught two passes for 21 yards. If Thomas clears waivers, he'll be free to search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Ruled out Sunday

    Thomas (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.

    Thomas suffered the hamstring injury in last Sunday's loss to the Saints and was unable to practice this week. Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is set to return in a limited capacity this week, which would have cut into Thomas' meager offensive workload regardless.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Injures hammy in first half

    Thomas left Sunday's game against the Saints with a hamstring injury and is doubtful to return.

    Thomas lost a yard on his only carry and gained 15 yards on his lone reception prior to exiting the game. Mike Boone will now handle any backfield work that doesn't go to Latavius Murray.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Has 23 yards rushing

    Thomas had one carry for 23 yards in Sunday's win at the Jets.

    Neither Mike Boone (eight snaps) nor Thomas (three snaps) got much playing time behind Latavius Murray with Davlin Cook out due to a hamstring injury. Neither has been much of a factor in the offense while Cook has been out.

  • Vikings' Roc Thomas: Just one carry in Sunday's win

    Thomas lost four yards on his only carry in Sunday's win over Arizona.

    Neither Mike Boone (three snaps) nor Thomas (five snaps) got much playing time behind Latavius Murray with Davlin Cook out due to a hamstring injury. It's not clear if Boone or Thomas is the No. 3 running back, but neither is much of a factor in the offense.
