With Mike Sims-Walker leaving the team last off-season, Thomas became the Jaguars top wide receiver and promptly proceeded to prove all the pundits who said he was ill prepared for that role correct. Some of the blame for his lack of production could be laid at the feet of rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert but Thomas simply doesnít possess enough speed to make up for his diminutive stature (5í8Ē, 198 pounds). More quick than fast, Thomas is best suited to play out of the slot but was forced to line up outside and couldnít get enough separation against opposing teamís top cornerbacks, catching just 44 of his 91 targets for the year. Jacksonville foolishly handed him a $19-million, three-year contract extension with $9-million in guarantees last October only to watch his production plummet, with Thomas catching just 24 passes for 203 yards and no touchdowns in 11 games after signing the deal. The contract likely ensures he will remain a key cog in the teamís offensive attack once again in 2012. However, having set career-lows in receptions and yards in 2011 while catching just one touchdown pass, donít expect Thomas to make much of his opportunities this coming season. And he wonít be getting nearly as many with Laurent Robinson and Justin Blackmon taking over as the teamís starters.
