Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports that the Miami Dolphins tendered contracts to six exclusive rights free agents on Friday including WR Matt Hazel, TE Jake Stoneburner, S Michael Thomas, CB Tyler Patmon, RT Ulrick John and S Shamiel Gary.
Thomas, 25, wound up signing on with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2012. He spent close to a year and half in San Francisco before he was signed off of their practice squad by the Dolphins.
The Dolphins brought him back on an exclusive rights deal last year.
In 2015, Thomas appeared in all 16 games for the Dolphins and recorded 85 tackles and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 41 safety out of 88 qualifying players.
