Report: Jaguars trade Julius Thomas to Dolphins

Monday February 20th, 2017

The Jacksonville Jaguars will trade tight end Julius Thomas to the Miami Dolphins, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

The two-time Pro Bowler spent two years in Jacksonville after playing four seasons with the Denver Broncos under then-offensive coordinator Adam Gase, who is now the head coach of the Dolphins. Thomas's two Pro-Bowl seasons coincided with the years Gase served as OC.

Over his six-year NFL career, Thomas has logged 185 receptions for 2,018 yards in 57 games. He signed a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jaguars before the 2015 season and is set to earn more than $8 million in 2017.

Trades cannot become official until the new league year begins on March 9.
