Cowboys' Joe Thomas: Inks two-year deal with Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas agreed Wednesday with the Cowboys on a two-year contract, Todd Archer of reports.

Thomas spent the past three seasons with Green Bay, serving primarily as a reserve linebacker and special-teams player. He'll slot in as the backup middle linebacker behind Jaylon Smith in Dallas but could fall behind on the depth chart if the Cowboys elect to add talent at the position through the draft.

Joe Thomas: Non-tendered
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas did not receive a tender offer from the Packers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Thomas saw his role with the Packers massively reduced in 2017, so it's not a huge surprise that the team has decided to let him walk scot-free. He now hits the free agent market in search of a new home.

Joe Thomas: Decides to retire
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas has elected to retire as an NFL player.

The 33-year-old Thomas, who was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, thus closes out a distinguished playing career that saw him anchor the Browns' offensive line until this past season, when he ruptured his left triceps tendon on Oct. 22. The stellar left tackle, who until last season's injury was as durable as they come, is clearly a tough act to follow, but in anticipation of Wednesday's news, the Browns are poised to add two tackles (Donald Stephenson and Chris Hubbard) in free agency.

Packers' Joe Thomas: Role reduced in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas totaled 14 tackles and a half sack over 12 games with the Packers in 2017.

Thomas played the most snaps of any Packers inside linebacker in 2016, but he played a reduced role this past season -- 528 defensive snaps fewer, to be exact -- due to injuries and the emergence of fellow middle linebacker Blake Martinez. As such, Thomas will likely be forced to compete for a roster spot in 2018.

Packers' Joe Thomas: Nine tackles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas recorded nine tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

The reserve linebacker saw an increased role Sunday given Jake Ryan's knee injury. Thomas made the most of his opportunities and could be in line to finish out the year as a starter with the Packers officially eliminated from the playoffs.
