Card: Panini Contenders 2017
Acquired: 2017, Box Breaker
Jahad Thomas played for the Temple Owls in college from 2013-2016. He began to see playing time during his Sophomore year, and then had an impressive showing in his Junior (276 carries, 1,262 yards, and 17 TDs) and Senior (207 carries, 953 yards, and 13 TDs) campaigns. He also displayed nice touch out of the backfield, catching 69 passes for 998 yards and 8 TDs over his time in Philadelphia. Considered undersized by scouts, Thomas went unselected in the 2017 NFL Draft.
He signed with the Dallas Cowboys but was cut before the preseason. He later signed with the Jets and was placed on their practice squad.

The Texans when all else failed, just drafted a Tight End. Enter Anthony Hill. I’m not sure the selection made much sense in 2009. With a jam packed roster of Owen Daniels and Joel Dreessen heading up the position, the Texans not only drafted Hill in the 4th, but TE James Casey in the same draft. I believe the thinking here was that Hill would provide superior blocking to help the Texans (at the time) anemic goalline offense. The Texans ended up carrying all of these tight ends into the season.
Hill never really blossomed into the player the Texans would hope he’d become. He’d contract swine flu during his rookie season, tear his ACL and make one catch during his career in Houston. He’d sign with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2011 and was assigned to their practice squad. Later that year Anthony signed with the Colts as an injury replacement, retiring in 2012.
