David Thomas
 
Lets talk about this guy for a bit. He's not one of those flashy TE's but man he played a huge role in our success last year. I really hope we re-sign him. He made 1st downs when they counted and I thought blocked really well. I think he even played a little FB.

What are your thoughts?:bng:

I won't lose sleep either way. He's probably the 8th option in our offense when we throw, behind Colston, Henderson, Meachem, Moore, Shockey, Bush, Thomas. Given the status of Billy Miller's achilles and Shockey's propensity to get injured yearly, I would put it past the Saints to bring him back at the right price. $750K to $800K next year tops.

I'm sure you'd pay him millions to keep him. I like to operate in this little place called the "real world". I said I'd like to keep Thomas at the right price. Do you even read my posts?

hmmmm...yes i do and i would say 1.5 million wouldnt be bad for Thomas..he was key for us in many games...i guess you would have to watch them though..

I watched every minute of every game this year. And if you'd pay David Thomas rougly $100K less than Pierre Thomas is going to make this year, then you are either high on something or just like thinking about real dollars in monopoly dollars terms. Good, let's pay everyone on the team $10MM a year!! It's not your money, why would you care?

I think Dave "Wendys" Thomas was an integral part of our offense. His versatility alone (receiving TE, Blocker, H-Back) warrants the Saints extending his contract; which I believe they will do. Is he a threat deep down the middle of the field (like Shockey is)? NO. Does he provide good value? YES. Can he stay healthy (unlike Shockey)? YES. Will he be re-signed? YES.

He provides good value at the right price. Totally agree. That price is not $1.5 MM next year. Sorry.

I like the guy a lot, although in our offense the second tight end looks good pretty often.

It seems like this type of player- (the Millers, that guy from Yale, even Dinkins) does well in our system
