Julius Thomas of the Jags likes to unwind on the range (VIDEO)

Stockton, California-native Julius Dewayne Thomas, best know as a tight end for the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, also enjoys a good day on the shooting range.

A standout at Portland State in both basketball and football, he was drafted by the Broncs in 2011 (fourth round) and signed a five-year, $46 million contract with the Jags last year.

The above video from VICE Sports shows the 6’5″ Thomas busting clays at a range in Jacksonville.

“It takes your mind off all the stresses and the things that are going on in your day to day life,” says Thomas, who explains it helps him keep a clear mind.
