    Broncos mulling over Zach Thomas

    The Denver Broncos are considering bringing in former Miami linebacker Zach Thomas in for a visit soon.

    Cut by the Dolphins recently, Thomas is getting a lot of interest on the open market and already has an offer from New England. He is also set to go to Dallas, New Orleans and Houston.

    Thomas has said he wants to finish his career with a winning team.

    That is surprising. With the successful seasons that New England and Dallas had however, i think it will take alot to get Thomas to come here.

      Why would we want a player that the worst team in the league cut? Didn't we learn anything from taking the entire Browns defensive line 3 years ago?

        Yes because Thomas is certainly as big of a bust as Courtney Brown.

          It's quite simple why Shanahan wants to bring Zach Thomas in.....


          What did Denver's Defense lack last year, specifically the front 7?

            I think NE and DAL will make it tough for Thomas to even consider coming to DEN for a visit. I bet a guy like Derek Smith (LB), just cut by 49ers, might make more sense.

              toughness? leadership?

                Winner Winner Chicken Dinner.

                Also sheds light in that Denver is looking to MLB in FA or Draft.

                  Despite his recent injuries Zach Thomas is still a great linebacker when on the field! He's a tackling machine and would help out the linebacking corps tremendously despite his age. Hes a proven leader and it would be interesting to see him in a Broncos uniform.

                  Guess we'll see what happens

                    NE and DAL play a 3-4......Zach Thomas is small and rly rly does not fit the 3-4.

                    He says Denver plz and I would luv it even if hes only here for a year or 2

                    B-Marsh owning Al Harris(Aka: the supposed most physical corner in the league)

                    Mock Draft:

                    **If Ellis/Dorsey fall**

                    1) Dorsey or Ellis(whoever falls)
                    2) Devin Thomas
                    4) Frank Okam
                    4) Beau Bell

                    **If Ellis/Dorsey dont fall**

                    1) Desean Jackson
                    2) Pat Sims or Trevor Laws(whoever falls)
                    4) Frank Okam
                    4) Beau Bell

                      HEY... I would love to have him. BUT... despite playing the 3-4... NE already offered Thomas a contract. Dallas will do the same... for sure. They have AA and Brady... but could use another body in the middle.

                      Zach says he wants to go to a team to win: NE & DAL are those teams.

                      BUT... HEY... If he signs with us... GREAT.

                        No, I don't want him.

                        I would rather stick with DJ.

                          But wait, we have a budding SUPERSTAR at MLB in DJ Williams (gag!)...so if that is so, why would we consider Thomas??

                          This should tell some of you Williams' honks all you need to know...
