What are your thoughts?
I like Thomas a lot. He is the same type player as Billy Miller. Good receiver,
so-so size, matchup, and blocking ability. I think it's time to draft another
TE with Shockey's size and talents. That would mean releasing Billy and
keeping Thomas.

Looks like Thomas will be making $1.18MM on his one year deal. So I was off by about $300K and you were off by about $400K. The Saints split the difference on us.

Re: David Thomas

I like Thomas so much I don't know why we drafted Graham (well not really he could be good, I just still am not sold on him). This kid had one helluva season last year and really did this offense some good. You could make the argument he was the best TE on the team.

stock311 your tough on this guy man. he played huge for the black and gold when evans went down.if he's not around for 2010 it means we get a dammed good trade or draft pick next year.

I could see a 3-4 year deal for $4.5-5.3 mill - back-loaded w incentives and a $1mill signing bonus.
exactly what i'm screamin too. or he could lead to a great draft pick in a trade. thomas is the real deal. thanks new england? if i remember right.
