2013

Thigpen is no better than third on the Dolphins depth chart at running back and with the drafting of Mike Gillislee maybe even fourth. In other words it is highly unlikely that Thigpen will be a major part of the offense this season and shouldn't be counted on to be touching the football all that much.
