New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas and left tackle Jammal Brown haven't participated in the first week of organized team activities while they wait for new contracts, The Times-Picayune reported Wednesday.
None of the four restricted free agents have signed their one-year qualifying offers from the Saints while hoping to work out long-term deals. So far, all offseason workouts have been voluntary. The first mandatory activity is the team's June 4-6 minicamp.
It's unclear how long Thomas and Brown plan to hold out. A report surfaced two weeks ago that Thomas was nearing a new deal, and he said last month that he would attend OTAs while negotiations were ongoing.
