Saints Nation: Pierre Thomas Signs One Year Tender to Remain with Saints

Pierre Thomas has signed his one year tender worth $1.7 million, officially making him part of the Saints' 2010 roster. While the running back still hopes to get a long term deal done, this at least guarantees he'll be on the team in the short term. Nice to see him back!

The article also says we should expect Roman Harper and Lance Moore to sign their tenders in the very near future. While I still hope Thomas can get a deal done before feelings get hurt and bad blood develops, at least he's on board. Thomas has been the team leader in rushing yards the past two seasons, as well as the team leader in rushing yards in the 2009 playoffs. He's also found the end zone 20 times in the last two season, which is a very impressive number. That's not counting the 3 scores he had in the postseason. It's a no brainer that we keep this guy.
