MIAMI - Two former Miami Dolphins are receiving one of the highest honors the team bestows on former players, being inducted into the Honor Roll.
Former Dolphins Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas joked about being not only former teammates, but also being friends and best of all, family.
"I married his sister 11 years ago...I just think, I got myself in trouble," Taylor said.
Thomas wasn't too thrilled about an NFL player marrying his sister, but he said he dealt with it.
"The one guy it would be Jason, that was sweet wasn't it, very sappy," Thomas said.
Taylor and Thomas have many more similarities. They both played 13 seasons with the Dolphins, they both have the same birthday, and they both were incredible playmakers on defense.
"We're very much the same, we're both hard headed, very competitive and intense."
Both players made a significant impact for the Dolphins during their time with the team, they said it was no competition.
"I'm better than him, other than that its pretty close. No, I agree, I will tell ya, that I'm better, yeah sure."
Both contributed in their own ways and now the Dolphins organization is honoring the two. They will join the elite class of the Dolphins Honor Roll.
"To go in with the Miami Dolphins in the Honor Roll makes me proud because that's who made me and gave me the opportunity to be great."
"It means a lot for our names to be up there in that fashion and be thought about as the two top defensive players in the teams history."
The two men go on to the Honor Roll Sunday. Oct. 14 during halftime during their game against the Rams.
