If we could sign both and have them each play 8 games before they get a concussion we'd be in the playoffs. Think about it... Thomas plays the first 8 games while Morgan plays spot duty... then Thomas gets a concussion. And while Morgan starts the next 8 games Thomas is recovering for the playoffs.

I'm kidding... well... not really but kinda.

If I had the choice between aging Pro Bowl linebackers, I'd take Ray Lewis. Sorry for bringing this up again, but if we're going after a 30+ guy, why not take the healthy one?

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.
Just say no... NO!!!

Zack Thomas, Shaun Rogers, Ty Law, and Alge Crumpler...woo hoo! I'm on the, "get veteran guys in now and go for the SB ring" band wagon. We won't get many chances with what we have now so I say go for it. I'd rather break the bank on older palyers and win one than what we've been doing.

Re: Zach Thomas released by Dolphins!

Thomas is ok. He does not have a long injury report. He is definitly a leader on the field. That is something the defense does not have. If we sign him before the draft I would say the saints will be going defense heavy and signing more FA for the D. It would be the sign we need to put our doubts to rest.
