Unsigned New Orleans Saints tailback Pierre Thomas and unsigned offensive tackle Jammal Brown have not been participating during the first week of organized team activities (OTAs), while safety Roman Harper and receiver Lance Moore have been participating, General Manager Mickey Loomis confirmed.

All four restricted free agents have not signed their one-year qualifying offers from the Saints while hoping to work out long-term contracts. Brown has not been participating in any of the team's offseason conditioning program, which began April 19, while Thomas, Moore and Harper signed injury protection clauses to join the team for conditioning workouts.

It's not clear how long Thomas and Brown plan to stay away from the practice field. So far, all of the team activities have been voluntary. The June 4-6 minicamp is the first mandatory team activity. The media will have its first access to the team during Thursday's OTA session.

Earlier this offseason, Thomas said he didn't plan to skip any team activities during the contract talks, saying, "I'm going to show up, just because that's my attitude and my personality."

Sign PT and move Brown if he won't cooperate.

Brown has to sign eventually. Sitting out another season (after having missed last season on IR) is not an option for him. No team is going to sign him for what he thinks he is worth after having missed two seasons of football.

Looks like Jammal's agent is doing him a disservice here. Probably he will sign when the Saints have worked out a trade, and he has worked out a long-term extension agreement with the team the Saints are going to trade him to.

Stop with the get rid of Brown stuff, Pro Bowl LT' dont grow on trees!!!! Bushrod played admirably in his absence, but he was gettin his A$$ kicked out there!! Ever notice run plays to the left side Jahari Evens 5x outta 10 was pulling to the left to help out Bushrod??? 3x David Thomas was chipping away and the other 2 Bushrod was solo. Brown is a top 5 LT in the League and fortunately he IR"d last season so it wont cost too much to retain him. Pierre Thomas deserves a new deal pay the youngman

Getting rid of Brown has been a point of contention on this board. Some are all for it while others are adamant about his abilities and whether he should play in New Orleans. It has been like this for other players who we had a love/hate relationship with. We are definitely better with Brown in the line up. He has his faults(penalties) but he has a huge upside with his talent and size. If he goes I wish him well........if he stays I want him to play well. Who Dat!

I'd be willing to bet Drew and Sean want Brown's situation resolved in a way that keeps him on the team. The guy is solid, but I'd rather move on minus all the drama if he doesn't wanna play ball.
