i think he was released early. the rest of the guys (chris crocker, chris redman, etc.) have not been released yet and become FA's when on the 29th. thomas became a FA when he was cut.

that is correct. you are free to sign ANYTIME you are unemployed. Crocker, and other UFAs are still property of their current teams until 29th. Thomas was let go early.

There is a difference between getting cut and being a Free Agent.

Being a Free Agent means you have the opportunity to sign with any team you want. In order to make it fair for any team to have time to talk with you; they lay it out there for the 29th to begin.

With being cut/waived; you are released from your contract (team still liable for remaining guaranteed money) and you move to a waver wire where any team can sign you but the worst teams have first dibs.

I am surprised Dallas signed him; he's been bad with concussions for the past few seasons and (3) Million a year is a lot for a guy who probably isn't going to see the field much.
