Rumor: Cardinals invite Oregon QB Thomas to minicamp
However, his NFL dream will have a chance to live on, possibly with the Arizona Cardinals.
According to a report by Scout.com NFL insider Aaron Wilson, the team has invited the former Duck to minicamp on a tryout basis.

Thomas had success running Oregon's offense the last two years, throwing for 5,642 yards while tossing 63 touchdowns against just 16 interceptions, as well as running for 692 yards and eight scores.
Thomas led the Ducks to their first Rose Bowl win since 1917 this past January, passing for 268 yards and three touchdowns in a 45-38 win over Wisconsin.
At 6-foot-3 and 215 pound, Thomas has good size, but there are some doubts to his ability to run an NFL offense.
