Pierre wants new deal but will not skip work outs..
 
Saints running back Pierre Thomas was one of the most underpaid backs in football last year, making the league minimum while he led the Saints backfield in rushing.

He is hoping for a long-term extension this offseason, but he won't skip OTAs in an effort to get paid.

"It's a business and it's up to them," Thomas said. "You know, I'm putting my resume out there, showing them what I can do."

Thats the right way to go about his business. Organisations seems to remember that kind of stuff when the contract eventually are negotiated.

Reggie ought to give him part of his.

PT is a class act on and off the field.

I agree with that! There's no way Reggie should be the highest paid back on the team, much less in the league.

Pierre is a class act and does deserve more money. If he gets the carries he'll easily have 1,200 yards and 10+ touchdowns.

Pierre can wait until his contract is up then he can get a new deal or we could always trade him for another RB on a losing team.

I'm glad you aren't the GM. Pierre is the best RB the Saints have. A player getting a contract extension when he is a restricted free agent is nothing new. He deserves to be paid more and receive some job security for what he has done on this team. The only reason he is being paid so little is because he went undrafted. 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.

PT has earned a substantial pay raise.

Thats the way you send a message pierre, you have earned a pay rise with your play, but your unselfishness speaks volumes. Some NFL players could definetley learn afew lessons from your attitude.

gotta love pierre thomas!!!
