Summary

Pierre Thomas was one of only two undrafted rookie free agents in 2007 to make the Saints' roster and has remained with the team for his entire career. He recently signed a 3-year $6.9 Million contract, including $2.4 Million guaranteed and a $1.25 Million signing bonus. His yards per carry dropped back to 3.7 last year, after averaging 4.8 for the previous two seasons, but he tied his career high for rushes with 147 and also caught a career high 77 passes. For his career, Thomas has rushed for 3,522 yards, caught 284 passes for another 2,231 yards and scored 37 TDs. He seems to excel for the team in critical spots. He always runs hard, rarely goes down on first contact and averages 4.6 ypc over his career. His per game opportunities had decreased somewhat for the past three seasons since his career high 1,095 yards from scrimmage in 2009, but last year he totaled 1,062 yards on a career high 224 touches. His opportunity for receptions should remain high with the departure of Darren Sproles and he should remain the lead running back in this year's version of the Saints' RBBC. Thomas had 7 games last year with double digit rushes and now has 34 games out of his 94 career games with double digit rushes. (May 17)
