Barry Jackson, of The Miami Herald, reports free-agent LB Zach Thomas (Chiefs) says he has played his last NFL game and would "love to" sign with the Miami Dolphins for one day so he can retire as a Dolphin. Thomas is still having symptoms from concussions, "including fuzziness when it gets cold."

Man....that's real sad to hear. The guy played his absolute heart out for us for 12 seasons. I guess it is not a surprise though that he is suffering those types of symptoms.

That's awesome though that he wants to do that. Come on BP! Just for a day...

I dont have a good feeling about ZT's future. Maybe he played a few seasons to long.

Concussions are a serious problem in the NFL, and the players need to realize the consequences of playing with concussions.

I'm glad to see he wants to retire as a Dolphin, but I agree FINesse, I think Zack is going to have some issues that will have to be dealt with.

He is a Dolphin, and he always will be a Dolphin... same case for JT.

Well this is a no brainer for the Dolphins, you sign him for a day and retire him. He goes down as one of the all time Dolphins greats.

Every team could use a couple of Zach Thomas'

I sure do miss him now.

I don't see how the franchise couldn't do it.

I appreciate everything Zach did for the dolphins, but what will signing him to a one day contract accomplish? He will forever be known as a dolphin that will not change.

I expect 100% that Zach will be signed to a one day contract, so that he can retire a Dolphin. It was so awesome having him in the middle of our defense for so many years. I definitely miss him.

One of my favorite quotes was the comment Mike Dikta said about Zach Thomas coming at you like a rolling ball of butcher blades!

Classic and he gave his heart and soul to this game.

This is a no brainer here, one of the most beloved Dolphins of all time.

Let's get this done.

It's not really to accomplish something. He just wants to retire officially with the Dolphins.In Which I think is a humble and a honorable thing to ask for.

I heard Joe Rose talking about this this morning and he brought up a fact that I never really thought of: Is Zack Thomas one of the top 10 Dolphins of all time? I would have to say yes. He was in on every single tackle it seemed like, he would pull in 150+ tackle season all the time. I think he should be given his one day contract, let him retire a phin, and put him up in the ring of honor all at once.

I say yes as well... he overcame so many things and became a key to this defense in a short time. The guy was all over the field covering people nobody thought a LB could cover.

Love the guy, and he's definitely in my top 10... if not top 5.

I'm sure it's just a matter of which game Zach wants to retire during, be honored at, lead the team out of the tunnel for, whatever. I hope he gets the same kind of treatment the Saints gave to Duce McAllister.

It's hard to believe they wouldn't do this for him.
I would like to see them retire his jersey also.
