Ross, 28, originally signed on with the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of California back in 2011. He played briefly for the Colts before joining the Packers in October of 2012.
The Lions would later sign him to a contract and give him an opportunity to their kick returner where Ross showed some ability. However, he was among the team’s final roster cuts before signing on to the Ravens’ practice squad.
Ross eventually signed on with the Raiders and finished out the year in Oakland. However, they didn’t tender him a contract as a restricted free agent.
The Jets signed him in April only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason. Ross later re-signed to the team but was unfortunately released back in September.
This is the first team to show interest in Ross since becoming a free agent.
In 2016, Ross has been active in two games and totaled 52 kick return yards for the Jets.
Thomas, 26, is a former third-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2013. He was in the final year of his four-year, $2.846 million contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2016 season when the Dolphins cut him loose after a disappointing outing.
The Lions brought Thomas in for a workout last week but did not sign him to a contract.
In 2016, Thomas has appeared in two games for the Dolphins and has been limited to playing just 71 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
