As soon as I heard the new and improved front office down in Miami had released Zach Thomas, I knew it was only a matter of time before he auditioned for BB and Co.
Sure, he's not getting any younger, but he fits a mold that seems to work very well in New England:
Fill your team with guys who want to win.
Zach made the trip to Foxboro on Monday and the Patriots were impressed enough to make an undisclosed offer to the former Dolphin. Thomas was slated to make $5.65 million in 2008, and will make a trip to New Orleans on Tuesday.
The Patriots are also scheduled to have Marty Booker in town for a workout. Marty, like Wes Welker, has been a pain in the bum for the Pats in years past. He was a major factor in both of New England's 2006 losses to Miami, both in January and December.
How funny would that be if the Patriots acquired all of these Miami castoffs and won the Super Bowl with them next year?
Keep your eyes peeled here for more Patriots' news and notes as the offseason rolls on.
