Miami Dolphin DB Michael Thomas is ready for a season of expectation in South Florida and is also about more than just football. To that end, on Monday he took to the NFL Network airwaves as an in-studio guest talking on all subjects.
Appearing on “Good Morning Football,” Thomas talked everything from new defensive coordinator Matt Burke being promoted for the departed Vance Joseph, Ryan Tannehill and whether he’s a “franchise” QB and also, Colin Kaepernick still being unsigned by anyone in late June.
Here’s the entire segment:
Particularly interesting is the discussion on Kaepernick kneeling for the anthem, as Thomas’ himself was doing that at the beginning of the season (above). In fact, as we wrote earlier this off season, owner Steven Ross knew of what the players intended to do in advance, and actually approved it.
Along those lines, Thomas was mainly in New York Monday to promote athletes taking social stances and giving back to their communities in part with the “Rise to Win” program in Miami. He was part of a panel later in the day with the “Hashtag 2017” conference, where the discussion speaking up and involvement in issues was further advanced.
