Recently it was reported that the Jags and the Phins were working out trade several different trade scenarios that included a swap of Julius Thomas and LT Branden Albert. It seems that a contract issue with Thomas was holding up the deal.
Now it appears that the Jags and Dolphins will treat the two as separate trades. Thomas would again be working under Adam Gase which under him had performed at his best. The trade cannot be finalized until March 9th which is the first day of the new league year.
According to Ian Rappaport, the Jaguars are going to trade Julius Thomas to the Dolphins and are set to receive a 2017 seventh-round pick, for the Veteran tight end. Thomas will be visiting Miami Tuesday and taking a physical.
In 2016, Thomas played in 9 games recording 30 receptions for 281 yards and four touchdowns for the Jaguars. He is a former 2011 fourth-round pick of the Denver Broncos, where he first played under Adam Gase. PFF rates him as 28th out of 63 tight ends.
