So everyone seems to think that he'll probably remain with the Saints. But this still seems like risky behavior to me. Do the Chargers have anything to lose in offering a guy like Thomas a big deal? If he signs, he instantly improves what has been the Incredible Disappearing Backfield, at the price of a 2nd round draft pick. If the Saints match, the Chargers will have forced a rival team into spending more than maybe they wanted to.
If I'm managing the Chargers, I take a long hard look at offering Thomas at least something, and test the Saints resolve in holding onto their most complete running back.
