What are you going to do? Not pay him? He’s done everything right and been a model teammate.

Thatís the holdup. 1.5 mil isnít a make or break number for the Saints. Does anyone really think they would let 1.5 come between signing him or not? The FO isnít going to risk that to save a dime. I bet the numbers are agreed upon. He will get his 20. All they are doing now is structuring it.

Pat Kirwan talked about the Thomas/Saints deal yesterday or the day before on NFL Radio. He said they are probably negociating between a $50 million guarantee or $20 million per annum. He said the saints should be willing to do either, but not both.
