OXNARD, Calif. -- Zach Thomas understands the perception some people have after his abbreviated final season in Miami, though he doesn't agree with it.
"They labeled me with that, as prone for concussions," he said. "Everybody just thinks I'm some guy out here that's punch drunk, running around."
Now Thomas looks forward to the opportunity to prove them wrong.
If he seems confused at times during the Dallas Cowboys training camp, that is because Thomas is trying to learn and adjust to a new defense -- not aftereffects of a concussion and migraines that limited the seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker to five games last season.
