We continue our Miami Dolphins free agents Walk, Franchise, Extend game.

We continue our game of "Walk, Franchise, Extend," working our way through the Miami Dolphins' 2015 free agents. We are working our way through the team's unrestricted free agents, giving you a chance to choose what the Dolphins should do with each of the players who are set to have their contracts expire in March.

Below you will find a poll. All you have to do it vote. Once we make it through all of the Dolphins' free agents, we will post the results of who you want to walk, franchise, or extend.

So far, we have run polls for tight end Charles Clay, guard Daryn Colledge, safety Louis Delmas, offensive tackle Jason Fox, cornerback T.J. Heath, running back LaMichael James, quarterback Matt Moore, running back Knowshon Moreno, defensive tackle Jared Odrick, and center Samson Satele. You can still cast your votes using the links below.

We now move on to running back Daniel Thomas.

Thomas, a second-round pick of the Dolphins in 2011, was released by Miami in the final round of roster cuts at the end of the 2014 preseason. When Knowshon Moreno and Lamar Miller suffered injuries, the team re-signed Thomas, who switched from number 33 to number 30. He only received 44 carries on the year, playing in 12 games, but he served as the insurance policy in case injuries again jumped up to grab Miller. He finished the year with 168 yards and two touchdowns, as well as 13 receptions for 121 yards. Thomas was a disappointment as the team's second-round draft pick, but he was a solid depth addition as an in-season free agent signing this past season.

Thomas signed a one-year, $645,000 contract when he returned to the Dolphins. He counted $569,118 against the salary cap, as the money was prorated for the in-seasons signing. He also accounted for $213,435 against the cap in terms of dead money from his preseason release.

What do you do with Daniel Thomas?
