Move past the visual of Dolphins tight end Julius Thomas celebrating a touchdown against the Denver Broncos by riding a football as though it was a bronco. Also move past the visual of Thomas taking a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustices to minorities.

Then ask Dolphins coach Adam Gase whether Thomas, one of Gases favorites, is having a good year.

I see it differently than it seems like everybody else does, said Gase, who believes Thomas hasnt been a bigger factor because the Dolphins havent had favorable matchups.

Hes done everything Ive asked him to do.

Thomas, the 29-year-old, seventh-year player, doesnt seem to pass the eye test at first glance.

But hes the Dolphins third-leading receiver with 37 receptions, one more than wide receiver DeVante Parker.

Thomas 362 yards receiving are fourth on the team, just 52 yards behind Parker.
