    I never expected him to stay here, anyway.

    We'll always have that 2013 pick of Tom Brady. Wish him the best.

    We cant have both our backup safeties not be able to play defensively. Every move isn't about culture, this was out of necessity.

    It's the new word to throw around with every move we make or don't make.

    Good, one less mediocre player coming back from a 6-10 team. Change is needed. Good luck with the Giants.

    He will be missed. His leadership and versatility made him a vital part of the roster. However, Miami can definitely find better talent to replace him. Wish him success.

    Aikens is a better athlete and also good on special teams, is younger too.

    We won’t lose much

    I agree that he isn’t a starting caliber playing on defence for our team or any team for that matter.

    But

    He is a pro bowl ST player that was a captain and an emotional leader on the team. He also had a lot of versatility in that fact that he can step in to a backup role in any position on the secondary. He was also cheap.

    I’ll miss him

    I'm surprised we moved on. He made a lot of plays on Special Teams. It won't be a problem replacing him though.

    Hes had durability issues lately & isnt exactly good when he starts at safety. I am happy we kept Aikens & I think we resigned a cheaper Lucas also

    Walt Aikens takes his spot on ST. He probably becomes ST captain now.

    Special Teams is dying. Almost all kicks go out of bounds or everyone almost always call for fair catches on punt returns

    Aikens is a good player on ST too. I don’t think losing Thomas hurts so much as I’m just sad to see a good guy like him go.

    And don’t forget the block in the back flags on about 40% of all returns.
