Saints will make long term offer to Thomas

Fox 8 - [Full Article]

The Saints could have a long-term offer to running back Pierre Thomas as early as tomorrow, a source told Sean Fazende of FOX 8 Sports in New Orleans.

The team tendered Thomas at a second round level after the season, a one-year deal that would have been worth $1.68 million.

Thomas has not signed that tender in hopes of reaching a long-term agreement with the team.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is great evidence that the running-back-by-committee nightmare in New Orleans is over. Yes, Reggie Bush will still be in the mix but Fantasy GMs should now consider Pierre Thomas as the Saints "Bell Cow."
