Veteran linebacker Adalius Thomas visited the Jets on Monday. The Jets, who reportedly planned to sign Thomas after Week One, have not yet done so.
If the Jets remain interested, they may have competition.
Per a league source, Thomas had a workout with the Dolphins on Tuesday. He was cut by the Patriots earlier this year, three seasons after signing a big-money free-agent deal.
The Dolphins play the Jets and Patriots on consecutive weeks, starting on September 26.
