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.

 Thomas, 27, even merited consideration as a Pro Bowl special teams selection. Thomas began his career as an undrafted free agent from Stanford and has made a considerable impact with involvement in the South Florida community.
The Dolphins reported for their first offseason workout on Monday.
Miami is waiting to see if running back Damien Williams signs his restricted free agent tender. Williams has visited the New England Patriots.
