PT Is Feeling Blessed

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Just another reason why I like this guy. Always have. An underdog who blew past the 'expert's' draft pics to get a roster spot and never looked back. Scored our first ever super bowl touch down. I'd be SO THRILLED ...

Just another reason why I like this guy. Always have. An underdog who blew past the 'expert's' draft pics to get a roster spot and never looked back. Scored our first ever super bowl touch down. I'd be SO THRILLED for him should it work out that he could play his entire career with us, and while that remains to be seen, I'm sure happy to have him secured for a couple more years...

When New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas agreed to terms on a two-year contract extension Wednesday, he also extended his love affair with Saints fans and a Saints career that epitomizes the mantra that Coach Sean Payton and his staff have chosen the best players regardless of how they arrived in New Orleans.

Thomas was an undrafted rookie in 2007 who managed to nudge past several other running back candidates, including fourth-round pick Antonio Pittman from Ohio State, to make the 53-man roster. Since, he has become one of the most beloved Saints, endearing himself to fans for his magnetic personality and to teammates for his reliability and productivity.

It means a whole lot to me, Thomas said. This is where I started in the NFL, with this team, (and) it just shows that they really appreciate what I do for them, the work I put in out there on that field, day in and day out.

Its really a blessing just to get another extension after the amount of years Ive played in the league. Just to say Im continuing with one team, it means a lot. Ive been hearing it from a lot of guys whove been in the league before me, they said its rough to try to stay with one team. Just for me to be there, going into my eighth year, its amazing to have a two-year extension. It truly is a blessing.

I talked to Coach Payton. Coach Payton just told me how much he likes my game, how hes liked me ever since (I joined the team) and what I contribute to the team, and he really wanted me to stay but it was really out of his hands. But it was up to Mickey and my agent do their thing, talk to each other and come up with a good deal. And thats what we did.

I haven't been able to find that under the dreaded "terms not disclosed" moniker. We'll find out eventually. Surely we saved a little money.

Good I feel lucky we have him. He is a very underrated player in the league. He is one of the best at the screen and having him adds a whole chapter to the playbook.
