According to Schrager, the Bills also view Thomas as a tight end and are inspired by Terrelle Pryor‘s transition to receiver.
Thomas, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2014. He lasted just over a year in Arizona before he was waived and later claimed by the Dolphins.
Thomas is in the third year his four-year, $2,652,092 rookie contract when the Dolphins waived him back in June and he was later claimed by the Giants. Since then, he was on and off of their practice squad this year.
This comes just a day after the Lions signed him to their practice squad.
In 2014, 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.
