P. Thomas received a four-year deal, potentially worth about $12 million. Posted by Josh Katzowitz

RB Pierre Thomas has agreed to a four-year deal with the Saints, the team announced today.

It’s a little surprising that the Saints had such interest because Thomas missed 10 games last season, and when he did play, he only averaged 44.8 yards per contest on about 14 carries. So, yeah, not a great season for Thomas. Plus, the team and Thomas didn’t get along too well, and there were questions about why it was taking so long for him to return from an ankle injury.

When he’s healthy, though, Thomas probably is the best RB for the Saints. Reggie Bush is up and down with his health, and though Chris Ivory showed some good attributes last year, Thomas is probably a better option for now.

After all, Thomas is a guy who averaged between 4.8 and 5.2 yards per carry his first three seasons in the league.

According to the New Orleans Times Picayune, the deal is worth about $12 million.
