The Jaguars are adding a running back to the roster, but he won’t be able to help them in the first three weeks of the regular season.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Jags are signing Roc Thomas to their 90-man roster.

Thomas was waived by the Vikings last month after the league announced that he’s been suspended three games for violating the substance abuse policy. Thomas was arrested for marijuana possession earlier this year and sentenced to probation in a plea deal this May.

Thomas made the Vikings as an undrafted rookie last year. He ran eight times for 30 yards and caught two passes for 21 yards in five appearances with the team. Thomas also returned one kickoff and played on special teams for Minnesota.

  1. the kid looked like he had talent. I understand why we (Vikings)cut him but I wish him well. He might turn out to be a sleeper for you. He probably thinks he has something to prove now so hopefully you will see his best.

  2. Hopefully he can find a spot with the Jags and continue a career. Young guy with some talent hate to see him lose it over smoking a little weed.

  3. Not a bad pick up by the Jags here. Decent player that made a bonehead mistake in Minnesota. Hopefully Roc is done with those types of errors.

  4. Solid depth and situational player. Should make the roster as he was also a special teams contributor. Assuming he can conceal his weed business a little better.

  5. He’ll be a good football player if he can stay out of trouble. If he had stayed in Minnesota, he would have, at best, ended up on the practice squad. Hope he makes the most of this chance.

    This guy was going to reinvent the QB position for the Vikings.
    Maybe the packers should look at him then. Considering the very average Cousins outdueled the sensitive injury prone one from green bay twice last year.
