Zach Thomas played for the Dolphins from 1996 to 2007 and now resides in Hillsboro Beach, Fla.
One of the best defensive players in Miami Dolphin's history, Zach Thomas recently sold the first home he bought after signing with the club in 1996.
The linebacker played his first 12 seasons with the Fins, was selected to the Pro Bowl eight times and recorded more than 1,700 tackles.
He held on to his first house in Plantation Acres for almost 15 years and sold it for just under $1 million.
Where does the NFL great live now? In a Roman-inspired, waterfront
mansion in Hillsboro Beach. He bought the six-bedroom beach house for $3.9 million. Named Villa Mistere, the property features direct ocean access, a dock built for a 100-foot yacht and custom European details throughout the home.
