Dolphins | Thomas Update II

Armando Salguero reports in the Miami Herald the contract signed by LB Zach Thomas is expected to be for five-years for $22.5 million. The deal included a $4.5 million signing bonus. In other team news, coach Jimmy Johnson is disappointed that all the big name WR Free Agents have been franchised and he may have to turn his attention elsewhere. "That was discussed in a staff meeting this morning," Johnson said. "I think there are times you might do that. So I don't totally rule it out. But it was unanimous; no one wanted to do that -- give up a pick and sign a [player to a] big contract. We all know the names; we all know who they are." Look for the team to go after second tier type WRs like Leslie Shepherd or Sean Dawkins.
