The Dolphins cut Logan Thomas Thursday, and his final practice with the team was a snapshot why.

Coaches asked Dolphins quarterback to throw end-zone fades into a trashcan. Thomas wasn’t close to even hitting it.

So they moved on from a failed experiment, writing off the $125,000 bonus they paid him to stick around last December.

Thomas, then on their practice squad, was going to be poached by another team, so Miami had to sweeten the pot to keep him.

What they got for their investment: zero career passes in aqua and orange.

Thomas became expendable after the Dolphins re-signed Matt Moore and drafted Brandon Doughty.

Defensive tackle Charles Tuaau has also been waived.
