Saints News, 3/10/15: Why Is Pierre Thomas Still Listed On Saints' Roster?

New, comments

Larry Holder points out via tweets that recently released RB and long-time beloved Saint Pierre Thomas is still listed on the roster at the team's official website. Also, the Saints haven't acknowledged or said anything about his release. What does this mean? Is it merely an oversight? The guy played his heart out for this organization and helped them win their only Super Bowl. If he's truly no longer a part of this team, he deserves something from the organization. Hell, this Saints fan thinks he deserves nothing less than a full-on ceremony and a spot in the Saints' Hall of Fame. What's going on here?
