While Thomas may not now be part of a trade package with the Dolphins for offensive tackle Branden Albert, it doesn't mean the tight end being traded to Miami is off the table.
Tight end is a glaring need for the Dolphins, considering Jordan Cameron, who missed most of last season with a concussion, and Dion Sims, who is viewed as primarily a blocking tight end, are both free agents.
Thomas is guaranteed $3 million of his $7.1 million salary for this upcoming season, which includes a $100,000 workout bonus. The deal can't be formalized until the new league year starts on March 9, so there's time for further details to get ironed out.
Some will be unhappy that the Dolphins didn't land tight-end Juilius Thomas in the deal and the Dolphins were reported to have serious interest and mutual interest from the Jaguars.

Trump's Controversial Choice for Budget Director Picks Up Key Supporter
Trump has said that strengthening the military is more important than balancing the budget and is committed to ending budget caps. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Mulvaney will "improve the way government does the people's business".
Albert is scheduled to visit the Jaguars on Monday, according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, and he said an interview with the Sun Sentinel's Omar Kelly he'd welcome the trade. Thomas signed with the Jaguars in 2015, agreeing to a five year, $46 million deal with a $6 million signing bonus.
While the Giants are looking to upgrade their left tackle spot, to trade Rodgers-Cromartie for Albert, who turns 33 years old in November, would have been a lopsided exchange, to say the least. Gase's two-year stint with Thomas led to the tight end's top two seasons of his career. "If Laremy Tunsil stays healthy and he becomes an all-around left tackle, not just skill-wise, I think he is one of the most gifted athletes I've seen". He has played 21 of a possible 32 games, hauling in 76 passes for 736 yards and nine touchdowns.
If both sides could work out a deal financially, a trade would reunite Thomas with his former offensive coordinator, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase. The Jaguars are receiving Branden Albert and a late round 2017 draft pick.
