On October 9, 2016, Thomas started as a left guard after Billy Turner was moved to left tackle due to starting left tackle, Branden Albert, out with an illness and backup left tackle, Laremy Tunsil, out with an injured ankle. After a disappointing 30-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Thomas, along with Turner, were both released.[2]
