08:01 AM ET 06.27 | New Orleans may be the future home of David Thomas, after all. While it appears [Thomas] will get an opportunity to gauge his value on the open market as an unrestricted free agent, we hear he's very much a part of the Saints' plan and they intend to re-sign him. Word is Thomas would prefer to stay with the team. The Saints tendered Thomas, who is entering his sixth season, before the lockout when it was unclear who would qualify for unrestricted free agency, but that tender will be rescinded if the league allows players with four accrued seasons to become UFAs. He would be the No. 2 tight end behind Jimmy Graham and is a solid utility player that can also function as a fullback.

Someone will complain about the "is this all there is?" quality to the threads this morning.


Truth be told - this IS all there is.

Well, this and discussions on the poor sod quality at Soldier Field.

Ahh... but we could have meaningful discourse about horticulture and proper soil acidity, nutrients and water providing the basis for good root structure.

On the other hand, young Mr. Thomas will generate riveting questions such as "would you like bacon and cheese with that?"

He's a back-up tight end AND a solid utility player - doesn't get more glamourous than that

Say what yo want about the guy, but he must love to play the game. He took a pay cut to turn pro.

Apparently Brees is about to throw to Thomas in that picture. Otherwise why on earth would anyone choose to run that picture with this article? The interns can't be THAT lazy... can they?

I saw on another site that Reggie is dating a Kim Kardashian impersonator. Let it go, Reggie. It's time to move on.
