Safety Michael Thomas, the Dolphins’ special teams captain, added another title to his resume Thursday.

Good Guy.

The South Florida Chapter of the Pro Football Writers Association announced that Thomas has won the 2016 Good Guy Award as the Miami Dolphin best exhibiting professionalism and courtesy in assisting the media.

In both good times and bad, Thomas always makes himself available to reporters to help explain to fans why things are as they are.

Offensive linemen Jermon Bushrod and Branden Albert also received strong consideration in balloting of writers and broadcasters regularly covering the team.

Thomas was presented a plaque by Chris Perkins of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the local chapter president.

“It’s a great compliment,” Thomas said. “Obviously I respect when guys are trying to do a job, so I try to make that as easy as possible. Plus, I understand if you have a good relationship with the media, it can only help you. So I respect you guys (reporters). I’m pretty sure the respect is mutual.”
