The Saints, who are obviously in need of some tight end help after a rash of injuries at the position, pulled the trigger on a trade with Patriots acquiring TE David Thomas for a 2011 draft pick.
Thomas was a third round pick of New England in 2006 and is known primarily as a blocking tight end, helping the Pats to one of their best rushing seasons in 2008.
During his stint with New England he has appeared in 32 games compiling 21 catches for 261 yards and one touchdown.
Although the Saints have not declared their intentions to pursue the recently available and former Cardinal TE Leonard Pope, New Orleans is widely considered his best landing spot.
Now that the Saints have acquired Thomas it may slow or deterr entirely the teams desire to sign him at this point, I’ll keep you black and gold fiends posted as news develops.
