Saints sign Pierre Thomas to a two-year extension

Agent Lamont Smith says that Pierre Thomas will remain with the Saints on a two-year extension.

Fantasy Impact: 

Thomas racked up 224 touches for 1,062 yards and five TDs as the lead back in the 2013 version of the Saints’ committee at running back. With Darren Sproles (and his 71 receptions) likely to be moved via trade, Thomas’s catches aren’t likely to take much of a hit. The team has shown signs of moving to Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson more in the running game, so PT is not likely to push 150 carries again in 2014. Still, he’ll be a regular part of the rotation in a potent offense and should be a good value in the later rounds. In PPR formats, he has finished in the top 30 in PPG in five of the last six seasons.
