Michael Thomas may be staying in New Orleans after all.

Thomas, the highly talented but injury-prone wide receiver who appeared to be on the verge of being released, is now likely to stay with the Saints on a one-year contract, according to multiple reports.

Thomas was the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year in 2019, when he caught 149 passes for 1,725 yards. But he has played a total of just 10 games in three seasons since then, as injuries have derailed his career.

The financials of Thomas’s one-year contract have not been reported, but a player who was thought to be on the way out now appears to be staying with the Saints for at least another year.

  1. MT just wanted to play with a GOOD qb!
    MT tweet to Saints sign Carr – “Thank You, Jesus!”

  2. Needs to be almost totally incentive based or perhaps a monthly contract. At this point things should strictly be on a prove basis.

  3. Thai dude is a drain on that team but has them brainwashed he’s still serviceable. Just throwing good money after bad.

  4. 10 millon for a guy to rehab all year. Saints have not made the playoffs in 3 years and think that this aging core is somehow going to take it to the next level with a mediocre at best QB. Yikes.

  5. Great.

    CGM was awesome last season until the injury.

    With what is available on the market like nobody and what is in the draft like nobody that fits that mold of him it was a smart move.

    If it does work out then find a giant possession wr with hands next year cuz options are limited this year certainly

  6. Thomas was on a HOF trajectory before the injuries. Even his two games last year he was gangbusters, with three TDs. But in all fairness he’s got to find a way to stay on the field.

  7. he is a prime example of why you cant pay a player big on 1 good year. he has been a joke since 2019. when he is on the field his does nothing, just cashing a big check for 3 yrs. they should ahve let him go
