RB Pierre Thomas Sheds His Walking Boot

Running back Pierre Thomas missed 10 games with an ankle injury and went under the knife in mid-January to address the ankle. Despite the injury, Thomas signed a four-year, $12 million deal with the club right before the lockout. On Wednesday, Thomas told his Twitter followers that he “was outta the boot”. In other words, his ankle is healing and he no longer has to wear a walking boot. Thomas figures to be ready for training camp (whenever that might be).

    My son 9 year old Logan is a Pierre fanatic and made a Pierre Christmas ornament which he sent to Pierre last Christmas – along with a cute little hand written note.

    To date no reply. Being a protective father I twice wrote to Pierre saying; “Come on, at least have your assistant send my boy a note or something”. Still nothing.

    I was a ballboy for the Saints as a kid and know these guys are usually big-hearted folks who do the right thing. Have things changed? Is Pierre a different breed?

    I’m ready to spend my own cash to buy an autographed PT photo and mail it to Logan just to make Pierre look like a decent human being. With $12million coming, I hope he’ll save me the $50 and do the right thing.


    • I’m so sorry to hear that, Jeff. I don’t know what the deal is with Pierre, but I know that there are some other Saints that are more fan-friendly. Jonathan Vilma, for example, is very good at answering fans directly. He maintains his own Facebook page and Twitter account. Perhaps you should try to steer your son in another direction. My thought is, they should never be too busy for fans. Granted, I realize it’s impossible to answer EVERY piece of fan mail, some (like that of your son to Pierre Thomas)deserves to be acknowledged.
