Re: New Orleans Saints uncertain about decisions of Pierre Thomas, Jahri Evans, others

Why do all these threads turn into Reggie Bush threads? It's Aaron Brooks 2.0 over here.

Here's what got my attention from the original post:
The Saints offered Thomas a one-year, $1.684 million qualifying contract last month.
Since we're discussing $ and RFA's then I have to wonder why aproven RB such as PT was offered 1/2 the amount of money that Sharper was allegedly offered? I'm no capologist. I stink at math in fact, but it seems to me that PT is worth at least the same amount as Sharper was offered (allegedly).

That's the tender offer, your main goal is to not spend more than you need to in order to keep some other team from signing the player to a qualifying offer. Since no team made such an offer, I would say the team was successful. They are working on a long term contract with him, and I think they will get it done.

I have no idea why people are concerned that the April 15 deadline has passed. That is a good thing.

Thomas will get paid by someone. My guess is the Saints. They're just being cautious with the cap likely to come back next year. Having a $10 million situational player on the roster is not the best thing for the cap.

Well, the time for other teams to make him an offer is over so it's an extremely safe bet that he will be in a Saints' uniform next year.
