Summary

Thomas has seen significant decline over the last three years, and while some of that can be pinned on an increasingly ineffective Denver quarterback situation, the truth is that he's just not the receiver he was. Thomas can still accumulate some nice yards after the catch, and the Patriots always need someone who can add yards in their short-range passing attack. Plus he is reunited with Josh McDaniels, the guy who drafted him. Still, his impact appears to be capped rather low, especially behind Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harris and Phillip Dorsett. The Patriots often sign aging players for very specific and specialized roles, so while Thomas could have a role, it might be very limited. (May 29)
