Thomas is recovering from a torn Achilles suffered last December and signed a one-year deal with the Patriots in April. The once star receiver has now endured two torn Achilles and is on the downhill trend of his career at 31 years old. It's possible he is facing an uphill battle for a roster spot with the Patriots, who also spent a first-round pick on Arizona State's N'Keal Harry. The Patriots also have the option of placing Thomas on the reserve/PUP list, which would mean he will miss the first six games of the season. Thomas is currently ranked No. 115 among wide receivers.
