Free-agent TE Julius Thomas (Dolphins) could be an option for the Los Angeles Chargers because of TE Hunter Henry's (knee) injury, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Eric D. Williams.
The Miami Dolphins released TE Julius Thomas on Wednesday, March 14. He was due to make $6.5 million in 2018, with $2 million guaranteed. If the contract contains offset language, the team will get dollar-for-dollar credit if/when he lands with another organization.
The Miami Dolphins are officially releasing tight end Julius Thomas on Wednesday, according to a league source. Thomas failed to impress in his lone season with the Fish in 2017, catching 41 passes for 388 yards and three touchdowns in 14 games. Since back-to-back 12 touchdown campaigns with Denver in 2013-14, Thomas has done very little for fantasy owners. Another change of scenery could help, but we're not holding our breath. As of now, Anthony Fasano headlines the team's tight end depth chart.
The Miami Dolphins plan to cut tight end Julius Thomas by March 14, which will save $6.6 million in salary cap space. The team will also cut linebacker Lawrence Timmons by March 14, saving them $5.4 million. With all of their expected cuts, they are expected to be around $11 million under the salary cap limit, which isn't much. They will have the least cap space in the AFC East. In his first and only season in Miami, Thomas disappointed with 41 catches for 388 yards and three touchdowns. He hasn't been productive in the NFL since back-to-back seasons of 12 touchdowns with Denver in 2013 and 2014, and he's unlikely to move the fantasy needle wherever he lands in free agency in 2018.
