Re: Zach Thomas released....

Damaged goods!
The more concussion you get the more prone you are to get another one. The stability of his brain in his skull is comprised, you do not recover form this type of condition. Troy Aikman had to retire due to reoccurring concussions and has was just a QB.
The amount of contact a MLB in the NFL has to endure Zach Thomas can not make it through a season much less a a game or two with out getting another concussion.
His career is almost over. Any team that signs him is making a big mistake. Regardless if you pay him the vet minimum, he will not last more than a game or two.
Trent Green the QB has the same condition, but he is a QB, which takes less of a pounding and the NFL has rules in place to protect QB's and their heads. MLB's do not.

I can see him in NO for some reason. It will be his last season and a complete waste of our time.

Re: Zach Thomas released....

Now if Taylor gets a get out of jail free card (although unlikely IMO), this guy is one of the best DE in the entire league. We certainly have that need.

That would be interesting if he were to be next out of Miami, curious if the SKINS would make a run at him?

Dolphins' Taylor deserves to be set free - 02/17/2008 - MiamiHerald.com

I think getting Taylor would be too good to be true but what would you have to give up to get him?

I don't believe the Skins have any interest in even talking to Zach Thomas.

I am sure that is the mentality of most teams.

Aren't Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas brothers-in-law?

I wouldn't be shocked to see them go to wherever together..

on a side note.. Zach Thomas possibly a Patriot? .. wonder how he can perform in a 3-4 defense..

I don't think they are anymore. Taylor and his wife got divorced I think.

Re: Zach Thomas released....

Did they release him because of his cap number or to give a younger guy a shot and a chance to develop?
