"Apparently, Pierre Thomas was nearly a Patriot.
According to the NewOrleans.com, the Saints almost sent Thomas to New England at the trade deadline for an unspecified cornerback."
Which CB almost got shipped? Bodden and Wheatley were hurt at the trade deadline; Butler was playing horribly but is full of athletic gifts. Wilhite was Wilhite. McCourty wasn't ever going to be shipped, the way he was playing. Arrington is a special teamer who's shown surprising upside at CB, but was unlikely to be targeted.
Guesses? Although, this could be complete tripe, of course.
