Summary

Julius Thomas was the Jaguars big splash in free agency a year ago and played well in the 12 games for his new team last year. Thomas missed four games on the year as he recovered from hand surgery. He was an excellent red zone threat for the Jaguars, scoring 5 touchdowns in those 12 games while picking up 46 receptions for 455 yards. If Thomas can remain healthy for the entire 2016 season the Jaguars offense will have one more target to keep defenses on their heels. Thomas had a touchdown streak in Weeks 11-14 last season where he caught touchdowns in each game. His two prior seasons with the Broncos he showed that he can score touchdowns as he had 24 touchdowns in 27 games. A healthy Thomas entering 2016 will do a world of good for Blake Bortles offense as he can start to spread the ball around even more and Thomas can be a big threat right next to Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.

Latest News

Jaguars | Blake Bortles meets with Julius Thomas (Fri May 27, 04:53 PM) - Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles said he met with TE Julius Thomas multiple times this offseason because he wants the same chemistry with Thomas that he had last year. 'We had a chance this offseason to sit down multiple times, watch film and talk about things,' Bortles said. 'Talk about what he wanted from me and what I wanted from him and how we can quickly get on the same page to grow together.'

Our View: Thomas is a stud when healthy...but he's never played a full 16-game season in his pro career. The Jaguars are building something good on offense, and Thomas can be a big part of what they do in the passing game--especially in the red zone. He's a low-end TE1 with the potential to catch double-digit touchdowns.
