Pierre will be missed, so sad but inevitable in this league.
Thanks PT for ALL the great memories in a Saints uniform. You will always be a Saint!!!

As much as I hate to say it I don't think Drew speaks up for the team to Payton he just sits back and let this happen. Brees, if you want to be this leader you need to speak up to the FO.

We need to quit trying to imitate Seattle. We can have our own style and win as long as we can have a good defense. No way is a back gonna run like Lynch if he does not get the volume of carries.

Perhaps he does. Who is to say he didn't feel it was time for Thomas to move on? His expected salary clearly wasn't warranted by his recent play. I loved PT as much, if not more, than most, but his days were numbered and Brees has to know that, as well.

This past season there was reason, though. There is no doubt he has been a huge part of our success, but now his return on investment doesn't support his return. Above all, the NFL is a business.

Re: Pierre Thomas released...

He's been injury plague the last couple years (I know since I had him on my fantasy team and it killed me) still think it was a shady move that could of been avoided by trimming some dead fat on defense
