New Orleans Saints Re-Sign Tight End David Thomas

By Editorial Staff

NEW ORLEANS — Tight end David Thomas has agreed to a deal Tuesday with the Saints, according to a league source. The terms of the deal were not disclosed but re-signing Thomas was high on the Saints to-do list.

Thomas will battle second-year player Jimmy Graham for time at tight end, though Thomas is seen more as a blocking specialist than a pass catching skills.

Although Thomas had two touchdowns and 219 yards last year for the Saints. He’s been with the team since their Super Bowl run in 2009.

With Thomas under contract, the Saints have four tight ends on their roster: Thomas, Graham, Tory Humphrey and undrafted free agent Tyler Lorenzen.

The Saints are making all the right moves to get back to the Superbowl in 2012, and I for one think they were only an injury or two away from that goal last year.
