Zach Thomas Set To Call It A Career

The Miami Dolphins management is trying to decide on what to do with Jason Taylorwho is a free agent of rejoining the Phins the past season.  The other Miami Dolphins stalwart from the past decade who left Miami 2 seasons ago is ready to call it a career.  The question is will he do it as a Miami Dolphin?

Zach Thomas has had enough.  Concussion after concussion has cost him the latter seasons of an otherwise brilliant career.  A short stay in Dallas two seasons ago gave way to a quicker stint in KC where after sustaining his last concussion sent him into free agency where he has been since.

Thomas wanted to go out on his terms instead of the Dolphins two seasons ago which is why he continued to play.  Now, he wants to go out a Miami Dolphin.  According to a report on, Zach Thomas is looking for a one day ceremonial contract with the Phins so he can retire a Phin.

Will the Dolphins do it?  It’s hard to think they wouldn’t.  Even a fussy Bill Parcells has an idea of the image that saying no would render to the teams fans.  So, it seems more likely that the man who has already donated his brain to research upon his demise will sign a contract that pays him nothing but ends his career where it all began.  In Miami.

    Zach deserves to go out a Dolphin and a spot on the ring of honor needs to be opened up for him when his jersey number is retired.

    My favorite player of all time.An animal. I named my son Thomas and he loves it because he saw him play when he was 4 5 6 on the Fins and I would love to see 1 more home game for him so I can take my son to the game and he can see Zach 1 more time in that fin uniform.Please let it happen.Zach will be in the hall of fame.
