Z. Thomas to Dallas
Agent Drew Rosenhaus just announced that linebacker Zach Thomas has signed with the Dallas Cowboys, uniting him with his hometown team.
Rosenhaus said the financials were very close with the three teams Thomas talked with -- Dallas, New England and New Orleans -- but what swayed it for Thomas was the chance to return to Texas, where he grew up, where his family still lives, and where he starred at Texas Tech.
Dallas is giving Thomas $1 million in base salary, a $1 million signing bonus and $1 million is what he called easily reachable incentives. It is a one-year deal, though Rosenhaus said that could change.
