MIAMI – Legendary Dolphins linebacker Zach Thomas is one step closer to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Thomas was named one of the 15 finalist for induction in the class of 2020.

The field will be narrowed to five just ahead of the Super Bowl in South Florida.

“I’m humbled and honored to be named a finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame alongside 14 great players I truly admire,” Thomas said. “I definitely did not get this far alone. I’m being considered because I had great coaches, teammates and incredible fans who helped and supported me. I can’t thank them all enough for their outpouring of love.”

In addition to being a seven-time Pro Bowl player, Thomas was a five-time All-Pro and is a member of the 2000s NFL all-decade team.
