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

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Redskins just signed him. With Ingram out, why in Zeus's butthole did we not sign PT, who has incredible knowledge of Brees' style and Payton's system? Is our front office really that poor or are they really that lazy or ...

You do realize he was signed and released by San Francisco in under two weeks...

The 2015 San Franciso 49ers?!?

I'm not saying I don't want him signed as a Saint for retirement, but, PT is obviously old PT not PT of old...

Because he's done. We were hardly giving him touches his last year here. Payton saw it.

Do you really think the coaching staff didnt consider him? If they thought he could produce he would be here. Its not like they decided to get Hightower or someone even though Pierre was better. Hes not here because he isnt any better. Jesus how stupid do you think Payton is?

One thing PT brought that we forget. He was money in the backfield blocking on pass plays. Something we're sorely missing now.

The 49ers have waived Pierre Thomas to make room for Travaris Cadet. The shuffling of runners comes in the wake of the season-ending MCL injury Reggie Bush suffered two weeks ago.

Losing Carlos Hyde killed the 49ers and my fantasy football team...

What would be the point of bringing him back for 5 games unless it was a retirement thing? It took almost 3/4 of the season for someone to pick him up and then he is let go shortly after. The fact that it was the 49ers, should tell you all you need to know. Love the guy but he doesn't have it anymore.
