So it's now official, as you can see by the article on the Dolphins' official website. Zach Thomas is no longer a Miami Dolphin.
Here's what Zach had to say in a statement:
And he'll always be a Miami Dolphin in the hearts and minds of every single Dolphins fan.
Now onto the statement released by Jeff Ireland:
Blah, blah, blah. Why couldn't Ireland just come out and say that football is a business. Oh well.
Anyways, the post below this one has more on the release of Zach. Also, I'll be posting another article later on tonight/tomorrow with final thoughts on the release of Zach and what it might mean for the Dolphins as we move forward.
Regardless of all that, though, this is a tough day for every Miami Dolphins fan.
