Has he been cleared to play?

I'd consider taking him at a bargain price. However, if he's expecting anything like the $5.6 million that he was scheduled to make in Miami next year before being cut, I'd seriously have to consider passing.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

I think Zach Thomas can be had for a reasonable price. There is no way he is going to break the bank. Not at 35 and coming off a year that he only played in 5 games due to concussion and headache problems. I guess he is worth a small gamble, but I really do not like concussions, especially with players over 30. If his concussion issues are behind him, (which they never really are), he could probably have another 2 or 3 productive seasons.

Zach Thomas,concussions ??? i don't know. One play away and then what. I do agree HELL'VA a lot better then what the SAINTS have. I would like to see someone younger. the Seahawks Nico K ( can't spell the last name its Greek )

If Saints history tells us anything, especially under General Manager Mickey Loomis' tenure, the team will be reluctant to open up the pocketbook.

Morgan has played in a grand total of 4 games the past 2 seasons, and he has never finished a season in the NFL. Chris Chandler was more durable.
Sack Thomas is 35 and has concussion issues.

I know is the offseason, but come on, guys.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

I'd take him only if:

1) his physical says he is 100%
2) the money is right
3) we still commit to drafting a young buck to bring up through the ranks

Given those 3 conditions, I'd tak this guy in a blink!

C'mon Payton. Get with it!

At least he would be an aging vet with a few pro bowls for the saints retirement home style defense.
