PIERRE THOMAS RUMORS

Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas entering pivotal, possibly final, year with New Orleans Saints

Mark Ingram is in a contract year. Pierre Thomas might as well be. The two most experienced running backs on the New Orleans Saints' roster are entering a career crossroads in 2014. Their performance this season could determine their future -- where they play and how much they make. On the brink of a season with Super Bowl expectations, the contracts are a reminder that very...

Slip-up forces Saints teammates to share a bed

Remember that time you went on a business trip and had to share a room with your co-worker and the hotel messed up and gave you just one bed in your room? No? Just me? That’s fine. Well that did happen to me and needless to say I was angry, but at least I wasn’t a professional athlete traveling with an NFL team. Saints teammates Andy Tanner and Austin Johnson got a lovely surprise...

Still a Saint: Thomas glad he was wrong

Pierre Thomas thought he was going to be released by the New Orleans Saints this year. Not just one of those, "You never know what might happen in this business" deals, either. Thomas saw what happened to so many of his longtime veteran teammates as the Saints were shedding salary-cap costs. He saw the reports that he and fellow running back Darren Sproles were being...

RB Pierre Thomas fighting for his Saints future

Running back Pierre Thomas is accustomed to doubts. Too small and not fast enough, analysts told him all the way to the NFL. Those criticisms prepared Thomas for this offseason: The Saints placed him on the trading block but never moved him, creating the potential of animosity in his relationship with the team. So far, it hasn’t. Instead, Thomas enters next week’s veteran...

New Orleans Saints: Notable undrafted free agents

The draft is over, but that does not mean the acquisitions stop. Immediately after the draft, all NFL teams got busy and signed a fair share of undrafted free agents. For the New Orleans Saints, the UDFA pool is always exciting given the team’s history of striking gold with the draft’s leftovers—Pierre Thomas, Lance Moore, Junior Galette, just to name a few. This year will...

New Orleans Saints: Strief, Thomas signings important

The New Orleans Saints, after signing Jairus Byrd, continued to stay busy with their roster shake up. Some moves were especially emotional, like the releasing of Lance Moore and the trading of Darren Sproles. However, two under the radar transactions may be some of the more important roster moves. The Saints managed to resign two of their own in offensive tackle Zach Strief and running...

New Orleans Saints: Temper expectations on the running game

In beating the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night the New Orleans Saints discovered something that has been missing all season—a running game. Mark Ingram hopped in the Delorean and looked like the Heisman Trophy version of himself with 145 yard and a touchdown on 14 carries (over 10 yards a carry!). Meanwhile Pierre Thomas averaged 5.1 yards a carry on 17 carries totaling 87 yards...

New Orleans Saints: Sean Payton, offense need to get balanced

  The New Orleans Saints fell to the New York Jets and have now lost two out of their last three after a hot start. The Saints problems aren’t very complicated—they are just getting too cute, especially on offense. If the Saints want to right the ship, they need to stop being so arrogant and just get back to basics. The New Orleans Saints offense number wise has had their productive...

Is It Ok For Saints Pierre Thomas White Girlfriend to Call Him A N*gger?

I’m not one to judge professional athletes and who they sleep with. I don’t have the time or the energy to even attempt to keep track with who they pick to be their latest girl for the month let alone the week. However when you don’t set the proper guidelines early on, things like this occur. New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas is dating nursing student, dance teacher...
