Why didn't we sign Pierre Thomas????!!!!!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He may not have much as a runner anymore, but he's smart and can catch checkdowns out of the backfield. Spiller isn't durable enough to carry the load. Plus as Skymike said we need a pass protection back with Ingram ...

a team has to know when its time to let a player go... so far they haven't proven to be wrong on this one.

"He can't run but we need a pass protector."

So put a TE in the backfield.

I'm sure Payton and the staff said "well Pierre is out there and is a decent blocker and good out of the backfield and knows our system and all and is the best player available right now but let's not sign him and go for someone worse"

The fact he knows the system, is a decent blocker, and good at screens and the Saints didn't sign him in spite of all that should tell you something about Pierre as a player now. Our staff knows him better than any staff in the NFL. I'm sure our guys know something others don't.

He's old and at the very least could probably get Payton Vicodin and Payton would sign him for that alone if it were worth it

True. But my h2o truly is a higher quality.

Did you draft any RBs before him?
