Zach Thomas has unresolved grievance against the Chiefs

Even though Zach Thomas officially retired from the NFL earlier today by signing a one-day contract with the Dolphins, he still has one remaining item of pro football business.

We’ve learned that Thomas has a pending injury grievance against the Chiefs.

Per a league source, the grievance is filed and a hearing is expected a few months from now.

Thomas presumably contends that he was cut by the Chiefs while suffering from an injury incurred while participating in practices with the team.  That’s likely why Thomas and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, disputed rumors last year that Thomas would be retiring.  If he had retired then, he would have had no claim to ongoing salary from the Chiefs.

    Lame. This is the type of stuff that’ll keep Kevin Mawae from getting a job at 39.
    He’ll fall off the toilet at training camp and file a claim.

    Leave it Hannibel Haley and crew to run a guy into the ground. I don’t care if Thomas was on the back half of his career. If the guy got injured while playing for you, take care of him.
    But what do you expect of the most overrated head coach and general manager combination in the NFL?

    All you have to do is look at his team photo with the Chiefs. Fat face, pasty. If he showed up in shape the dude would still be playing instead of crying in Miami.

    The injury probably happened while he was “practicing” with one of Dwayne Bowe’s “imports.”
