Dolphins released Daniel Thomas.
We always breathe a sigh of relief when Thomas gets cut because watching him run the ball in games is painful. The Dolphins still have cuts to make at running back. At age 28, Thomas' pro football career is nearing its end. Sat, Sep 3, 2016 01:17:00 PM

Dolphins signed RB Daniel Thomas.

The Dolphins don't make things easy for their fans. Thomas is a mere camp body for a team desperately trying to restock its running back corps, but the optics of the move are humorous after Thomas spent years siphoning touches from a more deserving Lamar Miller. An inveterate fumbler, Thomas is going on 29 after spending 2015 out of the league. He owns a career 3.6 YPC. Even though he's just one of 90, it's hard to understand why the Dolphins have deemed Thomas worthy of a roster spot.

NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports free agent RB Daniel Thomas is "eager and ready to go."

That's "Fumblin'" Dan Thomas, to you. Going on 29, Thomas was out of the league last season after his Dolphins career wheezed to an end in 2014. Thomas has averaged an abysmal 3.6 yards per carry across 409 NFL totes. He's simply not a major league talent.

Free agent RBs Daniel Thomas and Daryl Richardson worked out for the Colts on Tuesday.

Thomas, 28, spent the preseason with the Bears, rushing for nine yards on five carries. The former second-round pick of the Dolphins is probably done.

Bears released RB Daniel Thomas.

Very clearly on his last NFL legs, Thomas failed to beat out Ka'Deem Carey and Sinorise Perry behind Jeremy Langford, Quizz Rodgers, and Matt Forte.

Bears signed RB Daniel Thomas, formerly of the Dolphins.

"Fumbling Dan" finds a home after participating at Bears minicamp as a tryout. The Bears had little-to-no experienced depth behind Matt Forte. Thomas has a career 3.6 YPC to go with 13 TDs and six fumbles. The former second-round pick would do well to make it to final cuts with the Bears, where he'll be competing with Jacquizz Rodgers and youngsters Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey.

Free agent RB Daniel Thomas is participating in Bears minicamp on a tryout basis.

Thomas has gotten cursory looks from the Cowboys and Lions this offseason, but hasn't generated much interest since his Dolphins contract expired. The Bears would be an ideal landing spot for him personally due to a shallow depth chart, but he's proven time and again he has little game despite the big name.
Wed, Jun 17, 2015 12:02:00 PM

Free agent RB Daniel Thomas will work out for the Lions on Tuesday.

He'll join Ben Tate and a number of other veterans. Like many players on the street this time of year, Thomas doesn't have much game. He's averaged 3.6 YPC for his career and is terrible near the goal line despite his 6'1/235 size.
Mon, Jun 8, 2015 08:00:00 PM

Free agent RB Daniel Thomas worked out for the Cowboys on Thursday.

Thomas was part of a group of backs that also included Felix Jones (!) and Ben Tate. The owner of a career 3.6 YPC, Thomas rushed the rock only 44 times for the Dolphins last season, averaging 3.8 yards per carry. Thursday is the first time we've heard his name since the start of free agency.
Thu, May 21, 2015 07:18:00 PM

Daniel Thomas rushed once for a one-yard touchdown and caught one pass for one yard in the Dolphins' Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Thomas scored an early goal-line touchdown and was otherwise quiet. The pedestrian veteran finished the season with 44 carries for 168 yards (3.82 YPC) and two TDs. Thomas was initially cut by the Dolphins, but re-signed when they lost Knowshon Moreno. If 27-year-old Thomas has a future in the league, it's as a low-end No. 2 or higher-end No. 3 running back.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 05:40:00 PM

Daniel Thomas (knee) is listed as doubtful for Week 16.

Damien Williams will back up Lamar Miller against the Vikings.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 03:35:00 PM

Daniel Thomas (knee) missed Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Thomas is looking shaky for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Damien Williams will back up Lamar Miller if Thomas can't go.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 03:53:00 PM

Daniel Thomas rushed for five yards on one carry and caught a three-yard pass in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Jets.

It was Thomas' lowest touch total of the season. He's well off the fantasy radar.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 11:56:00 PM

Daniel Thomas rushed three times for 19 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 12 loss to the Broncos.

Thomas vultured Lamar Miller for a three-yard score on Miami's opening possession, but got the rock just one time thereafter. Despite today's score, there's zero reason for Thomas to be owned in 12-14 team leagues.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 08:27:00 PM

Daniel Thomas rushed five times for 23 yards in Miami's Week 11 win over the Bills.

Thomas was the only Dolphins back to carry the ball besides Lamar Miller (shoulder), who looked much healthier than he did in Week 10. With the Dolphins now having 10 days to rest up for next Sunday's showdown with the Broncos, Thomas is once again a distant second to Miller on the depth chart. He's not a viable RB4.
