Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

Doesn't surprise me. Was hoping he'd goto New England...
He wants to play for a contender and well the Saints aren't exactly that. Pats only offered him vet minimum, so BAM NFC East it is.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

He's old and can't stay healthy. He's a concussion waiting to happen. He's had a very nice career and I like the guy, but I don't think this is a big deal. On a side note, they must not be very happy with '06 1st round pick Bobby Carpenter. He was supposed to be a stud, and in two seasons he only has 1 start and 37 total tackles. Parcells doesn't make too many personnel blunders, but he did with Carpenter.

carpenter did alright when ellis was out but he's avg. at best. He plays OLB & Z. Thomas plays MLB & I presume will play inside in the boys 3-4. Bradie James is one starting ILB, who is the other? Don't know if he'll start or not.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

I think he still has a year or two left. He's a good pick up for them.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

To everyone who thinks that Thomas was going to sign for the veteran minimum let this be a lesson to you. Guys don't settle for the veteran minimum as often as you think. I wish I could find a list of guys that have signed for the veteran minimum to show you how few quality guys sign for it every year.

On a side note Thomas deal is potentially worth 11 million dollars.

Well I think the signing was done as a favor to Rosenhaus. He just happens to represent Marion Barber as well and they are in contract talks.

In fact I think the whole meeting with Thomas was done as a favor to Rosenhaus.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

Does anyone know why Zach Thomas is able to be signed when Free Agency doesnt start for another week? Just wondering.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

he'll be injured by week 3 and in and out for the rest of the season, be cut next season, then sign back with the 'Fins in 2009 to officially retire with the team.

Apparently if you're a free agent before the start of Free Agency (ie got cut after the season or sat home all year) then you're allowed to sign with a new team. This doesn't include guys who contracts expired so for example Rock Cartwright can't test the market until free agency opens up. That way teams can use their temporary exclusive negotating rights to retain player before the start of Free Agency.

Re: Cowboys sign LB Thomas

Thomas has [emphasis on has] been a fine player for a long time, injuries have set him back the last couple years.

He might find sledding a little tough in the NFC east being a 228lb MLB, if it's Dallas's intent to play him at that position. There's a big difference between the NFC east & the AFC east............Good Luck!!
