Pierre sets a great example. Hey guys, pay attention! THIS is how you're supposed to conduct business.

Props to you PT!

It is probably that his deal is close to being done and it is a fair deal.
I find it strange that no other teams showed interest in PT considering he only got a 2nd round tender.

Now that he has proven himself, the Saints need to prove to him that they want to keep him in the fold and ink him to a longer contract. If they only give him the one-year tender and don't give him a long-term deal, they are making a huge mistake.
He's not a top 5 or top 10 running back in the NFL yet and that's why no other team bid for his services. I will admit he did very well last year but one year wonders have come and gone in 43 years why don't we wait and let him do it at least 2 years in a row.

I really don't agree with your opinion on this, i think PT was one of top players on this team driving us to the Super and his play resulted in helping us win it all.
He's played hard all season, i don't think we should slave the man through his pennies on the dollar contract any longer, he should be getting paid like the top back he is..

Im on board with us paying him his worth, i don't want us going into the season as a bunch of cheap scapes, scammers and slave drivers after giving the fans what we've wanted out of this team for 43 years.

Re: Pierre wants new deal but will not skip work outs..

Truth is PT knows what the situation is. He is part of a committee backfield. Yes, he does deserve a nice raise, but he is also smart enough not to hold out for it. I am sure if he was the type of player to raise stink and try and hold out, Loomis wouldn't have any issues letting him stay out. The way the Saints offense is structured, there really isn't anyone besides a Brees hold out that would cripple the unit. Brees has the only true leverage on that offense.

He did very well in 2008 as well, so that's 2 years in a row.

And the "not top 5 or top 10", other than Drew Brees (because he touches the ball every time) no one in the offense amasses that many total yards to be labeled "top 5 or top 10", but that has nothing to do with players' abilities, it has more to do with the way Brees distributes the ball and the offense Payton calls.

Now, you don't know whether other teams have asked about him.

Re: Pierre wants new deal but will not skip work outs..

know ur role, finish your contract the way you've been playing and you'll earn your new contract

im not a fan of players signing a contract then wanting more money before it expires

its 1 thing if the team wants to pay you more money for your services, the team that gave you an opportunity and carried you to a super bowl, the team that didnt leave you on the bench after your injury in favor of mike bell and reggie bush who were doing quite well without you, the team that was the #1 offense in the league without you

but sure, if you feel you deserve more money, then ***** and moan about not getting paid but remember that when you get hurt or underperform and that team throws you to the curb cuz you cant live up to that contract(charles grant) that you better not have any hard feelings
