Thomas was found to be in possession of 143 grams of marijuana, and in the state of Minnesota possession of any quantity more than 42.5 grams is considered a felony.According to Nick Ferraro of the St. Paul Pioneer Press Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , Thomas received a stay of adjudication, which is mandatory for first-time, low-level drug offenders in the state of Minnesota. That means that, if Thomas meets all of the terms of his probation, the charge will never appear on his record.Thomas’ probationary period will be three years, and the conditions of his probation include a chemical dependency evaluation and possible treatment; no alcohol or drug use; and random testing, in addition to the testing he already goes through as a National Football League player.What happened today is separate from any sort of discipline Thomas might face from the league. If the NFL handles this the way they usually do Trae Waynes Jersey , we won’t hear anything about what sort of punishment Thomas might face until around the start of Training Camp, or perhaps even after we get into the preseason. This offseason, the Arizona Cardinals inexplicably offered former Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Sam Bradford a two-year contract worth $20 million a season. Bradford’s hold on the Cardinals’ starting quarterback job lasted about three weeks before they turned the reigns over to rookie Josh Rosen, making the contract look even more ridiculous.On Saturday, the Cardinals released Bradford. . .and, in the process, may have hosed the Vikings out of a high-level compensatory draft selection.According to Mike Sando of ESPN Eric Kendricks Jersey , by releasing Bradford before Week 10 of the season, the Cardinals have gained a sixth-round compensatory pick of their own, and in the process have apparently deprived the Vikings of what would have been a third-round compensatory pick for Bradford.The cancellation chart that the folks from Over the Cap put together each season has proven to be pretty accurate, and as of now they have the Vikings receiving four compensatory picks in the 2019 NFL Draft. One of those was a pick for the loss of Sam Bradford. Now, it doesn’t appear as though that will be the case. The Vikings’ signing of Kirk Cousins is “canceled” by the loss of Case Keenum, according to the chart, and it would appear that Bradford is no longer going to be a qualifying free agent loss.The potential loss of a third round pick is pretty huge for the Vikings Infant Marcus Epps Jersey , given that they’re already out a fifth-round pick (for Trevor Siemian) and a seventh-round pick (for Brett Jones). Over the Cap still has the Vikings projected to receive a sixth-round pick and a pair of seventh-round selections, but let’s be honest. . .that extra third round pick would have been really nice to have.It’s also my understanding that if the Cardinals had held onto Bradford until Week 10, then he would have counted as a qualifying loss for the Vikings and they would likely have gotten that third round pick after all.Once we have more clarification on this, we’ll have another update to the situation. However, it appears that Sam Bradford has found a way to, at least indirectly, kick the Vikings in the groin one last time.UPDATE: According to Nick Korte of Over the Cap Marcus Epps Jersey nfl draft , the Vikings won’t recoup the lost pick for Bradford even if another team picks him up.
