Michael Thomas is signing his one-year restricted free agent contract with the Miami Dolphins, according to a league source.
Thomas had interest from two NFL teams, including a three-year offer, according to a source but decided he wanted to stay with the Dolphins.
Thomas is receiving a raise to approximately $1.8 million from $675,000.
The Dolphins had retained a right to match any offer. Thomas has versatility as a nickel cornerback and safety. And perhaps most importantly, he is a team leader and a special teams captain.
