ESPN: Thomas voided final 3 years of his contract with Cowboys, making him a free agent.

Yeah saw that on ESPN myself. Guess he wants to play next year on a winner. LOL

Here is somthing I found...

""I'm going to weigh my options," said Thomas, who voided the final three years of the contract he signed during the off-season by playing at least 32 percent of the defensive snaps."

It seems like Dallas is falling apart all over the place, Romo collapses in shower, you know TO is pissed, Pacman is horrible, and they spent way too much $ on Roy Williams. I would want out too!

um, no. He's too old and doesn't fit a 3-4 scheme.

He's headed to the Texans or home.

He doesen't want to play for the Cowboys because he didn't like the 3-4. There's no way hes coming back here

My best guess, Zach is probably headed to the Texans. I certainly don't believe that he'll be back in Miami.

I would not bring him back, i don't think he fits into the system anymore.

I watched some games and they didn't use him properly. They had him way off the line of scrimmage and he wasn't in on 3rd downs.

Zach should come back to miami for a retirment ceromny and then go home. It is time for him to hang it up and walk away from it with his head held high.

He's been a product of the system. Watching him was like watching Marino's last year, very painful.

I disagree that he was a product of the system but with age all players regress, he is still a solid player

He was allowed to roam free and was a dominant player when the Dolphins had guys like Chester, Bowens, Gardner. I think Jason Taylor was a far better player but because of the way he left i'm sure most on this site would disagree.

On a sidenote whenever he had a pick 6 and would flip I always thought he'd land on his head and break his neck.

shula guy is right, but i do not see that happening, zach still wants to play, it will not be houston they have that kid d'meco ryans. if zach is smart just call it quits sign with the fins and call it a career you had a nice one a lot of teams out there are going to the 3-4 at least all the contending teams are. come to think of it he would be a good fit in carolina or eagles

WV is right. He's old and uselss right now. Besides, he's to small for the 3-4 defense anyway.

yeah, he only made All-Pro in the Quiter's 3-4 scheme. :rolleyes2: Some of you anti-Zachs are unreal. Look, we're in the Play-offs:dolphins: and the past is the past, but don't make stuff up. ZT is still better than any Inside Backer on our roster.

i still think Zach is a solid player but right now Crowder is better in my opinion
