New Orleans Saints running back Pierre Thomas celebrated Mardi Gras like a champ -- seriously, the guy threw a party for 1,500 people ... and rocked his Super Bowl ring the ENTIRE TIME.
Sources connected with the party tell TMZ, Pierre wasn't just celebrating Fat Tuesday -- the guy just signed a 4-year $12,000,000 contract extension last week ... and wanted to let loose with his teammates.
We're told the party -- which went down at Metropolitan nightclub in The Big Easy -- featured 8 DJs, 2 dance floors, a dessert bar, and 15 go-go dancers ... not too shabby.
We thought it was bad luck to wear your Championship ring all the time -- but clearly, that theory doesn't hold water.
