Saints running back Pierre Thomas was one of the most underpaid backs in football last year, making the league minimum while he led the Saints backfield in rushing.
He is hoping for a long-term extension this offseason, but he won’t skip OTAs in an effort to get paid.
“It’s a business and it’s up to them,” Thomas said. “You know, I’m putting my resume out there, showing them what I can do.”
To this point, the restricted free agent hasn’t received noteworthy interest from other teams. Thomas told his agent he only wanted to hear updates if another team wanted to meet with him; that hasn’t happened.
With Reggie Bush’s future uncertain and Mike Bell already gone, Thomas figures to be among New Orleans’ priority extensions this offseason.
