Report: Zach Thomas Signs With Cowboys

Sources are reporting veteran inside linebacker Zach Thomas has chosen the Dallas Cowboys as his next team, spurning a contract offer from the Patriots.

Thomas, 34, will now play in a 3-4 system for the first time in his career. The seven time Pro-Bowler missed much of 2007 with concussion and migraine problems.

With Thomas signing elsewhere, the Patriots will have to rely on Tedy Bruschi (may retire), Junior Seau (may retire) and perhaps now have to move Mike Vrabel back inside.

My Take: I thought Thomas would fit well here, so it’s a little surprising he would choose Dallas. The Cowboys also run a 3-4 defensive scheme so that arguement is thrown out the window. My best guess is that the Cowboys offered him more than one year on the contract. We’ll see what happens with Seau and Bruschi but it’s looking more likely that it could be a Vrabel/Adalius Thomas inside linebacker corps in 2008.
