Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Dolphins’ decision to promote QB Logan Thomas to their active roster, and prevent him from signing on with the Bengals, will cost them $815,000 in total.
- Rapoport adds that Miami will pay Thomas $90,000 for the remainder of the 2015 season and a base salary of $600,000 next year.
Thomas, 24, still has another three years remaining on his four-year, $2,652,092 rookie contract, which includes base salaries of $510,000 (2015), $600,000 (2016), and $690,000 (2017).
Miami wound up claiming him off of waivers after he was deemed expendable by the Cardinals after they traded for Matt Barkley. However, he was waive at the start of the season, but was added to their practice squad just a few days later.
Last year, Thomas appeared in two games for the Cardinals, even though they lost Carson Palmer and Stanton for the season. He threw for 81 yards and a touchdown, but completed just a single pass attempt.
