David Thomas signs tender with Saints

The Saints will enjoy their trade for tight end David Thomas for another year.

G.M. Mickey Loomis announced Tuesday Thomas signed his one-year tender as a restricted free agent, which is no surprise considering a team would have to give up a third-round pick to get him.

“David came to our team last season and proved invaluable, both as a receiver
from the tight end spot and also with his versatility and ability to fill in at
fullback when we needed him to do that,” Loomis said.

Thomas, acquired for a seventh-round pick, struggled with injuries in New England. He made 39 catches in 18 games last year, including three in the NFC Championship. 

He sounds like a guy the Patriots could use.

    He also struggled with the Belichick offense’s inability to get any production out of the tight end position.
