I personally do not believe the Saints are done at addressing the RB situation. If Mark Ingram is available when the Saints pick in the first round, which is highly unlikely, my bet is they pick him. Another guy they may go for is Mikel Leshoure. I am not saying the Saints will draft a RB in the first round, but the chances are very likely if one of those two are available. I know there are some pressing needs on defense, but it was pretty obvious to me the lack of running game kept the Saints from making a strong run at a repeat.

As a big PT fan I am glad they came together and agreed on a deal that will keep PT here as a Saint.

As a big PT fan I am glad they agreed to a deal that both sides thought was fair. It doesnt matter if some fans think he is to slow, to small, injury prone or not a starting RB. He has done everything he needed to do to prove he is worth a 4yr deal at a salary he was content with.

Glad that might be the end of some threads that he will not be in a Saints uniform anymore, he faked his injury last year, he is just a product of our offensive system. PT worked his way onto this team and worked his way up to our leading rusher for 2 straight years. Pay the man. This should show Bush what his salary should be slightly less than PTs.

Coach Sean Payton revealed that Pierre Thomas' ankle surgery could keep him out of all offseason activities.
Thomas underwent "extensive arthroscopic" surgery, described as a three-step process. Details are unknown, though Payton believes Thomas' rehab will stretch into the summer, causing him to miss OTAs if there is no lockout. There's no indication that Thomas is in danger of missing training camp, and the new contract suggests the Saints aren't overly concerned.

This craps on the ridiculous rumors of how PT was faking it last year. The man was really hurt. This should also put to rest of how he's in Payton's doghouse because of it... if he was, we wouldn't have gave him a 4 year contract.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Yep. I never believed that dog house crap from day one. One article "suggested" it and everyone kept repeating it for 6 months as if it were fact.

And I hear there's tension between Bush and Payton due to Bush's injuries and his east-west dance routines, Which explains why he's getting less and less touches even when healthy.

I'm surprised. Contract looks fair too. I hope he can recover from that injury.

To be fair though, I definitely feel he has caught the most crap for someone who has helped give us so much. He helped us win our first superbowl, and just as soon as he gets hurt (which I feel was a legit injury) people want to dismiss him for some of the subpar talent out of the shallow RB pool in this years draft. Signing PT was great for us and now we get to hit the draft defense candy store. Hilliard for sure though. Had he not been plagued by injuries himself, I think he would've been further appreciated outside of Saints fandom.
i knew what u ment wood its a good pick he just has that something to give the saints i have to say i actually pumped my fist when i heard, , don't tell nobody okay. lol
