The Fine Print of the Pierre Thomas Deal

Pro Football Talk reports on the fine print of the deal for running back Pierre Thomas, who inked a four-year deal last week with the Saints.

When we initially passed along Pierre Thomas’ four-year, $12 million contract last week, we called it a steal for New Orleans.

Thomas’ deal includes a $640,000 base salary in 2010 which is guaranteed. He’ll also get a $2.7 million roster bonus this year.

Thomas’ base salary climbs to $2.16 million in 2011, and and $860,000 of that is guaranteed. Add Thomas’ 2010 pay to his guaranteed ’11 pay, and his total guaranteed money in the deal is $4.2 million. Thomas’ total pay in 2013 will be $2.5 million, and it will be $2.9 million in 2014.
