The money we save by letting Thomas go, I'm sure will go to re-sign Brees. Something that has really got me worried. I really hoped they would have already gotten Drew in a long term deal by now.
As long as he can make a full recovery from the shoulder injury they are gonna reveal that he has had all year.

Anyone else notice 3 and 1 and 4th and short is not a problem this year?
Good Eye!

Yes, he has been a great player for the Saints, but too often injured. I know the same can be said about Bush, but I don't see him going anywhere.

The Saints will have to address the RB situation during the next off-season. Looks like Ivory may be a keeper, Bush to continue as the all purpose guy, and don't forget about the guys on IR Hamilton and Hill should be back next year. I also think Jones has a very decent shot at sticking around, especially since he does possess receiving skills out of the backfield.
forgot about hamilton. yea PT gone for sure

They will bring in free agents and other late round picks where value is best, just like pt and ivory.

dont think it will be an early pick either. mid to late round pic and def 1 or 2 undrafted guys. lets hope our early picks go to def.

Unless someone has footage of PT skateboarding on his bum ankle, I see no reason to jettison him
