Saints keep RB Thomas in fold

The SportsXchange

Running back Pierre Thomas is staying with the New Orleans Saints, agreeing to a two-year contract extension on Wednesday.

His agent, Lamont Smith, confirmed the news via Twitter, saying "PT will remain a Saint. 2 year extension. Congrats to the Saints and PT."

Various reports earlier in the week indicated that Thomas might be on his way out the door. The Saints parted with veteran running back Darren Sproles and wide receiver Lance Moore before free agency began and were active on Tuesday in the player marketplace, signing safety Jairus Byrd to a big contract.

Thomas led the Saints in rushing last season with 549 yards and two touchdowns on 147 carries. He started nine games and also had a career-best 77 receptions for 513 yards.

Joining him the Saints' backfield next season to compete for playing time will be Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson.
