The Eagles signed former Miami Dolphins guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/future contract.

Thomas, 27, was a third-round pick of the Dolphins in 2013. He played college football at Tennessee.

He appeared in 37 games in his four years with the Dolphins, including starting all 16 games in 2015 after starting a combined nine in the previous two seasons.

Thomas played in just one game in 2016, a loss to the Tennessee Titans. You probably don’t remember that game, but you might remember the aftermath: the Dolphins, disgruntled, released two starters, one of whom was Thomas. Thomas was only a spot starter, in the lineup because of two other injuries, but his performance was apparently so porous that the Dolphins let him go to make a statement.

The Dolphins beat the Steelers the next week and finished the season on a blistering run, going 9-2 after releasing Thomas.

Now, he’s a Philadelphia Eagle.

What a world.
