Remember Pierre Thomas? The former dominant running back for the New Orleans Saints. The Washington Redskins have picked him hope in hopes to provide some insurance in tight third down situations.
The Redskins showed interest in Thomas last offseason but signed Matt Jones and still had Chris Thompson as a back up. Thomas is back in play now because of the concerns of Thompson’s shoulder.
Thomas can bring another veteran voice to the Redskins sideline along with being a third down specialist.In his eight seasons with the Saints Thomas racked up 327 passes including 77 in 2013. He is look at as a good pass protector.
Let’s see if Pierre Thomas can survive four more games and see how much more juice he has in his tank. Because of the similar playing styles of the Redskins and the Saints I think Thomas will find some success.
