If you think the New England Patriots are chomping at the bit to see who is the next casualty of the Miami Dolphins, you may be right. Today, the team has apparently fired secondary coach Joe Collier in favor of hiring former Dolphins DC Dom Capers as a consultant. Capers was fired as part of the mass purge when Bill Parcells took over.
While Capers joins the Patriot staff and Zach Thomas mulls over their “respectable” offer, Thomas now at least has another team offering up money. Today the New Orleans Saints offered Zach a contract. While New Orleans prepped an offer, Denver bowed out of the race for the 12 year veterans’ services. Zach is still expected to meet with the Cowboys before making a decision on his final destination.
In the meantime, the Atlanta Falcons and Oakland Raiders will have their coin toss on Friday morning. If Oakland wins, Atlanta and the Kansas City Chiefs will flip to see who picks in the 4 and 5 slot. Due to previous tie breakers, the Chiefs can not pick ahead of the Raiders.
