a favor to Rosenhaus? why? unless the Boy's were the only place Zach wanted to play, that makes no sense. Its not as if nobody else wanted his services. Rosenhaus wasn't in a position of weakness...why would he need a favor?

From all indications I ave read, Dallas was not the one who intitiated contact with respect to Thomas.

Thomas has the same agent as a number of players on the team and hence the agent marketed his client.

Due to a long standing relationship with the agent, the Cowboys agreed to talk to Thomas.

And he came at a price that is affordable. Not to mention if he does not make the grade at camp and gets cut, there is zero cap hit.

But on the outside of it all......I smell a trade.

LOL...holy crap! If that's true, the Cowboys are dumber than I thought. Sure Thomas is still a good LB, but his serious concussion issues are too much to ignore, and no way he will be worth it.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

Zach Thomas was a fine middle linebacker. way past his prime. and doesn't Dallas play a 3-4? it seems rather odd that Thomas is on the older side, but the cowboys are one of the youngest teams in the league. strange move

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

Zach if healthy can be a good fit for the Cowboys (i.e. what Seau does for the Pats) and the reason he was able to sign is because he was cut after the season ended but before free agency started

Actually, Miami does play quite a bit of the 3-4. Dom Capers was their D-Coord until recently. But they mix it up between the 3-4 and the 4-3 depending on the offense.

But as I understand it, they want to use Zach Thomas on the weakside ILB position, on the same side as DeMarcus Ware. The coaches seem to think that using Thomas this way is very similar to the way that Wade Phillips and Brian Stewart used Donnie Edwards on the same side as Shawn Merriman in San Diego 2 years ago when that defense racked up 60 or so sacks in the season.

But Thomas will have to beat out Akin Ayodele for the starting position. If not, that is really not bad depth at all on that side.

When you do it that way it is a smarter move than people think

Sporting news reported that he will split time with Ayodele to keep both fresh. Not a bad idea depending on the financials.
Speaking of which, does anyone know the actual financials on this deal?

He's still a good player if he can stay healthy.
