ESPN's John Keim believes the Redskins are still in the market for another running back.
That would be great news for Pierre Thomas, who spent the final month of last season with Washington. The Redskins' running game did not show well in the first preseason game, but the offensive line shoulders a lot of the blame for the struggles. Still, it would be smart for Washington to bring in a veteran option behind starter Matt Jones. Sat, Aug 13, 2016 10:07:00 AM

The Redskins "remain interested" in free agent Pierre Thomas.

Thomas was out of the league for most of last season, but held his own in a third-down role over the final two weeks. The player once horribly nicknamed "P.T. Cruiser" would be insurance on Chris Thompson (shoulder surgery).

Coach Jay Gruden said free agent Pierre Thomas remains on Washington's radar.

Thomas spent the first two months out of the league last year before appearing in five games with Washington and the 49ers. With Chris Thompson recovering from shoulder surgery, Thomas would be veteran insurance. Thompson, Silas Redd, and Mack Brown are the Redskins' only backs behind Matt Jones.

Free agent RB Pierre Thomas wants to continue his playing career.

Now 31, it took Thomas over half the season to find work, but he believes he can keep going. "That’s what my body has to tell me, and my body is telling me I can still go," Thomas said. "I’m just listening to my body. If my body says it’s up, then my time is up. But my body is not telling me that now." With Alfred Morris headed for free agency, Thomas' best bet is probably re-signing with the Redskins and trying to solidify a roster spot behind Matt Jones and Chris Thompson.

Pierre Thomas managed seven yards on four carries in the Redskins' Wild Card Round loss to the Packers.

His most notable play was getting thrown for a four-yard loss on a third-quarter sweep. Thomas operated as the Redskins' primary passing-down back in their last meaningful game (Week 16), but he was nothing more than a sparingly used change of pace and designated pass protector in Sunday's defeat. Chris Thompson finished with eight catches. Thomas is an impending free agent and will try to find work this offseason. He turned 31 years old last month.

Pierre Thomas rushed seven times for 30 yards and caught one pass for five yards in Washington's Week 17 win over Dallas.

Thomas had more touches than Chris Thompson for the second straight game. The Redskins like his pass protection, but he's unlikely to make much of an impact with Matt Jones (hip) on track to return next week.
Sun, Jan 3, 2016 07:26:00 PM

Pierre Thomas (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Thomas had a bigger than expected role last week, catching seven passes for 67 yards. He won't be a DFS option even if Washington rests their starters.
Wed, Dec 30, 2015 04:34:00 PM

Pierre Thomas rushed four times for 22 yards and caught 7-of-8 targets for 67 yards in Washington's Week 16 win over Philadelphia.

Thomas worked ahead of Chris Thompson in this one, operating as Washington's passing-down back behind Alfred Morris. As the Redskins embraced a pass-first approach against the Eagles, Thomas wound up with 11 touches and shared snaps almost evenly with Morris. It's possible Thomas has overtaken Thompson as Washington's primary passing-game specialist. The Redskins signed Thomas off the street on December 11.
Sun, Dec 27, 2015 12:05:00 AM

Redskins OC Sean McVay said newly-signed RB Pierre Thomas could be active for Week 14 against the Bears.

"He looked good," McVay said. "He did a good job picking up a couple of little things we did with him. And we’re looking forward to seeing if he’s going to be ready to go on Sunday." Thomas just signed with the team Friday and was reportedly out of shape in his one week with the 49ers earlier this season. Even if he is active, Thomas will not play a meaningful role. That could change moving forward with Chris Thompson likely headed to injured reserve with a torn labrum.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 11:08:00 AM

Redskins signed RB Pierre Thomas, formerly of the 49ers.

Thomas, 31 next week, spent seven days on the 49ers' roster earlier this season, rushing four times for 12 yards. The Redskins were in need of a satellite back with Chris Thompson dealing with a torn labrum in his shoulder. Thomas is unlikely to provide fantasy value the final month of the season.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 11:40:00 AM

Free agent RBs Pierre Thomas and Robert Turbin worked out for the Patriots on Thursday.

The Pats are likely just updating their emergency list, but a move can't be ruled out with only James White and Brandon Bolden behind LeGarrette Blount. Thomas isn't the player he once was, but possesses the passing-down skill-set the Pats lost with Dion Lewis' injury. Turbin is the definition of "just a guy."
Thu, Nov 12, 2015 04:57:00 PM

49ers waived RB Pierre Thomas.

Thomas was replaced on the roster by Travaris Cadet. Thomas spent just a week with San Francisco and played just four snaps against the Falcons. The veteran passing back should struggle to find another team this season.
Tue, Nov 10, 2015 11:50:00 AM

Pierre Thomas gained 12 yards on four carries in the 49ers' Week 9 win over the Falcons.

Signed off the street five days ago, Thomas operated as the 49ers' No. 2 back behind Shaun Draughn, with Kendall Gaskins bringing up the rear. Carlos Hyde (foot) is tentatively due back after San Francisco's Week 10 bye. If Hyde does not come back, Thomas would figure to assume more usage in a rotation with Draughn and Gaskins, particularly in the passing game.
Sun, Nov 8, 2015 07:28:00 PM

Pierre Thomas said he’s still learning the 49ers offense.

Thomas also said he’s not in game shape. The 49ers are expected to use Thomas in a committee, but he shouldn’t see more than 6-8 touches. Kendall Gaskins is the favorite to start.

49ers signed RB Pierre Thomas.

With Carlos Hyde dealing with a stress fracture in his foot, Reggie Bush (torn MCL) out for the year and Mike Davis needing surgery on a broken hand, the 49ers are in desperation mode at running back. Thomas worked out for San Francisco earlier this month and was likely one of the first names on the emergency list. The 49ers also added Shaun Draughn on Monday, and Thomas and Draughn would form a low-ceiling fantasy committee this week against the Falcons if Hyde cannot play.
