Thomas signed a one-year contract with the Ravens on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was hardly effective in his first stint with the Ravens, combining for just 259 return yards in eight games, but a lack of obvious difference makers from a special teams perspective on the open market likely helped spur the reunion. It's entirely possible Thomas could still be on the roster bubble this preseason if other skillful returners outperform the 27-year-old.

Thomas, who signed with Baltimore on Nov. 5, played almost exclusively on special teams with his new club. He had no targets on three offensive snaps but racked up 166 kick return yards and 93 punt return yards over eight games.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was signed to bring a spark to the Ravens anemic return game but failed to provide one for the most part. His longest kick return went just 31 yards and his longest punt return went just 20. The 27-year-old is due to hit free agency in March, and his lack of production as a returner makes him unlikely to remain in Baltimore come kickoff for the 2020 season.

Thomas signed with the Ravens on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas spent exactly two weeks as a free agent before finding a new home. He could possibly return both kicks and punts, reports Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic. The 26-year-old played just one snap on offense in six games with the Chiefs this season.

Thomas was released by the Chiefs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas re-signed with the Chiefs in mid-August and has primarily worked on special teams this season. The 26-year-old rushed once for four yards, had one catch for six yards and returned seven kickoffs for 155 yards.

Thomas hauled in his only target for six yards in Sunday's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas contributed primarily on special teams, playing only four snaps on offense. Given the breakout efforts from Demarcus Robinson and Mecole Hardman in Week 3, it's unlikely Thomas will carve out anything more than a minor role on offense even without Tyreek Hill (shoulder) available).

Thomas could split some snaps with Mecole Hardman that are usually handled by Tyreek Hill (collarbone), Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas was suspended for the season opener for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, but he rejoined the wide receivers room Wednesday. The sixth-year weapon mainly serves on special teams, hauling in no more than 14 passes in any of the last three seasons, so even some increased reps are unlikely to improve his fantasy stock much.

Thomas was reinstated from his one-game suspension Mondoay, per the NFL's official transaction log.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas re-signed with the Chiefs in mid-August and was handed the suspension last week for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The 26-year-old doesn't figure to have a major offensive role, but he could be a solid piece on special teams.

Thomas will start the regular season with a one-game suspension for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy, Blair Kerkhoff of The Kansas City Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas re-signed with the Chiefs on Aug. 20 after fellow special-teams contributor Marcus Kemp suffered a severe knee injury. Thomas doesn't figure to get much playing time on offense, but he could be an important piece on special teams, where he's capable of both covering and returning kicks.

Thomas agreed to a deal with the Chiefs on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Thomas spent his first five years with the Chiefs. He only played five games in 2018 before a knee injury sent him to injured reserve. He was then arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession in January ahead of restricted free agency and has been looking for a landing spot since. Kansas City made the most sense for a second chance, but should he ultimately make the 53-man roster a suspension could certainly follow.

Thomas (lower leg) was arrested in Missouri on suspicion of marijuana possession, Pete Sweeney of 610 Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

This isn't a good look for a player who spent most of the season on injured reserve and will now become an unrestricted free agent in March.
