Zach Thomas update: Pats offer contract

Well, one of our fears may come to fruition as Dolphin fans.  Adam Schefter is reporting that the Patriots have offered Zach Thomas a contract.  Negotiations between his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and the Pats will continue.  

Thomas visited with New England today and is still scheduled to meet with the Saints tomorrow.  Schefter does point out that the Jets, Bills, Broncos, Texans, and Cowboys all are interested in bringing Thomas in for a visit.

What does this mean to the Dolphins?  Nothing, except that cutting Zach might prove to come back and bite the Dolphins in the ass.  You have to wonder if Thomas still might have more left in his tank than we all thought.  After all, there's as many as 7 or 8 teams rumored to be interested in him.  That does say something.

But, again, the Dolphins deciding to cut Thomas is probably the best thing for this franchise at this point in time.  But it's going to be painful to watch Thomas play in another uniform, especially if he's still as productive as he has been in Miami.
