Free agency is all set to begin a new year in the NFL on March 5 and the world champion New Orleans Saints have a bit of work to do. There isn't a lot of things that need to be done, but a number of names are on the list as restricted or unrestricted free agents.

Should the Saints get an offer on a restricted free agent (RFA), then they can either choose to match it and keep the player or not match it and lose the player. Losing the player means compensation of some kind, usually draft picks, will be headed their way.

One of the biggest names on the RFA list for the Saints is starting running back Pierre Thomas.

Thomas is an undrafted free agent out of the University of Illinois who has been with the team since 2007. He has become one of the stars of the number one offense in the NFL and even been one of the unconfirmed causes of the release of Saints' legend Deuce McAllister. So the question remains, should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

This isnt even up for negotiation. The Saints arent going to let him slip through there fingers. Hes better than all of there other backs.

Without question, we sign him for the amount he is worth. Pierre Thomas is an excellent back and an excellent team player. Plus, he continues to improve. He is, IMO, the most important element of the Saints running game.

Re: Free Agent Series: Should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

Definetly, in my opinion pierre is a great all round back, he has the power to go up the middle and bounce of tackles (which he showed numerous times in SB44), whereas he also has the ability to be a fast back getting to the outsides. He is fantastic in the passing game, especially on screen passes, he can block in the backfield. He is vital to our production, keep him around!!!!

Re: Free Agent Series: Should the Saints re-sign Pierre Thomas?

So far, everyone has voted "definitely" to that question. I believe Loomis will work on PT's contract as soon as Jahri Evan's is completed.

PT always keeps going at least through the first contact, and often through multiple contacts with the defense. And the thought of him on the receiving end of a screen pass in or near the red zone has me still salivating, and I'm sure has any opposing defense very worried. The Saints will match any reasonable offer for PT; as far as I know, no offers have come in yet.

They had better re-sign him. If Loomis wants this team to continue on a winning streak, he needs to pay Pierre yesterday!
