Description: After being out of football for all of 2010, free agent LB Adalius Thomas hopes to play again next season. SOURCE: BOSTON HERALD
Insight: Thomas made the free-agent rounds last year, visiting the Bengals, Dolphins and Jets, who were speculated to have a bit more interest with Rex Ryan having coached Thomas in Baltimore. But after sitting out, we doubt he gets much interest this time around. He's lost a lot of his pass-rushing skills.
 
8/24/2010 9:01:00 PM
Description: Coach Rex Ryan shot down speculation that the Jets would be interested in signing free agent Adalius Thomas to replace DE Ropati Pitoutua (Achilles' tendon).
Insight: The Thomas-Ryan connection is a strong one, though, so don?t necessarily rule this reunion out. It could happen at some point. (RapidDraft.com)
 
7/26/2010 10:52:00 PM
Description: The Jets have no interest right now in free agent OLB Adalius Thomas.
Insight: Thomas? age and decline in skill have a lot of the league a bit gun-shy of offering him a contract right now. He?s not going to be worth a ton in IDP leagues. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: The Jets don't have any interest in free agent LB Adalius Thomas right now. SOURCE: ESPN.COM
Insight: Thomas turns 33 in August and has received very little interest in the free agent market. It may take a training camp injury before a team gives Thomas a serious look.
 
5/6/2010 8:24:00 PM
Description: Adalius Thomas is reportedly drawing little interest on the free agent market.
Insight: This was expected, although the rumors of him going to the Jets have also cooled somewhat. It's still a good bet that he ends up playing for Gang Green. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/2/2010 6:57:00 PM
Description: Jets coach Rex Ryan stated Friday that the team will "definitely" consider signing free agent OLB Adalius Thomas.
Insight: This statement is just the opening act in the drama called ?Adalius Thomas Will Be a Jet?. Book it now: Thomas will be playing for Gang Green this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/27/2010 10:45:00 PM
Description: Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum confirmed on WFAN radio Tuesday that "nothing is imminent" between the team and free agent Adalius Thomas
Insight: Sure?just like there was ?nothing imminent? with Jason Taylor, either. Expect Thomas to end up wearing green as the match makes too much sense not to happen. (sportsBuff.com)
 
4/26/2010 10:30:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Chris Mortensen confirms that the Jets are "discussing" signing free agent Adalius Thomas
Insight: Oh, well...here's a complete surprise. Seriously, though, Thomas wouldn't at all be a bad fit for New York and his IDP value would be good. (sportsBuff.com)
 
4/26/2010 10:11:00 PM
Description: Patriots released OLB Adalius Thomas.
Insight: A blind man could have seen this one coming as Thomas had a serious beef with the Patriots over the way his arm injury was handled. Expect him to wind up on the Jets like many ex-New England players. (SportsBuff.com)
 
4/18/2010 11:24:00 AM
Description: Estranged Patriots LB Adalius Thomas says his forearm, broken in 2008, still bothers him because the team sent him to a massage therapist instead of a physical therapist.
Insight: That sounds like a fairly outrageous mistake if true. Expect Thomas to wind up somewhere else (perhaps with the Jets} if he parts ways with the Patriots. (SportsBuff.com)
 
2/5/2010 8:46:00 AM
Description: The Boston Globe reports that Thomas is sure he has played his last game with the Patriots.
Insight: Thomas is expected to be released shortly and could be interested in signing with the Jets to join Rex Ryan's defense. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/28/2010 8:44:00 AM
Description: The Boston Globe reports that the Patriots have not been in contact with Thomas since the end of the season.
Insight: The Patriots are likely to release Thomas who is due a 4.9 million dollar roster bonus in 2010. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/12/2010 9:05:00 AM
Description: The Boston Globe reports that Thomas may be released in the offseason.
Insight: Thomas was in Bill Belichicks' doghouse all season long and did not play up to his capabilities this season. (SportsBuff.com)
 
8/30/2009 1:56:00 PM
Description: Thomas had three solo tackles (five total) and defended a pass during the victory over the Redskins.
Insight: New England missed Thomas' skills last season when he was unable to play due to a broken forearm. They are a more dangerous unit with him on the field.
 
8/2/2009 3:06:00 PM
Description: After losing most of last season to a broken forearm, Thomas is ready to assume his leadership position on the Pats' defense again.
Insight: Expect the pass rush to be improved with him on the field.
 
Out11/13/2008 10:06:00 AM
Description: Thomas broke his left forearm Sunday and will miss the rest of the season.
Insight: Backup Shawn Crable hit injured reserve a week before, leaving the Patriots with no one listed on the depth chart behind Thomas on the team's official website. We could see more 4-3 looks from New England, which has more healthy talent up front than at linebacker right now. Rookie ILB Jerod Mayo can also play outside. (SportsBuff.com)
