  • Michael Thomas Officially A Free Agent

    Headshot for Michael Thomas

    Wide receiver Michael Thomas (knee) is no longer under contract with the New Orleans Saints, according to a source, and is now officially a free agent. It was a formality this offseason since his deal was only really for one year. The 31-year-old was designated as a post-June 1 cut by the Saints. Thomas missed the final seven games of the 2023 season due to a knee injury and isn't likely to have a very robust market given all of the injuries he's endured since leading the NFL in receptions (149) and receiving yards (1,725) in 2019, the last year he was named to the Pro Bowl. Since then, the former second-round pick by the Saints in 2016 out of Ohio State has played in only 20 games and has caught 95 passes for 1,057 yards and four touchdowns.

  • Michael Thomas Expected To Be Released By Saints

    Headshot for Michael Thomas

    The New Orleans Saints are expected to release Michael Thomas this offseason, according to Jeff Duncan of NOLA.com. The team is expected to make the move before the beginning of the 2024 new league year on March 13 as they will owe him all of his $119 million future bonus if he is on the roster on March 15. Thomas has appeared in just 20 games over the past three seasons. The veteran should be able to land with another team as a free-agent, although he may have to settle for a one-year deal to prove he can stay healthy. Thomas will leave New Orleans with 565 receptions for 6,569 yards and 36 touchdowns over seven seasons.

  • Saints, Michael Thomas Appear Headed For A Breakup

    Headshot for Michael Thomas

    No final decision has been made regarding wide receiver Michael Thomas' future with the New Orleans Saints, but at this point the two sides appear to be headed for a breakup after eight seasons together. Thomas played in 10 games in 2023, his most in a single season since he sprained his ankle in Week 1 of the 2020 campaign. The 30-year-old veteran had some big moments but ultimately never topped 70 receiving yards in a single game and suffered another ankle injury that cost him the final seven games of the year. It was Thomas' fourth straight season missing at least seven games. Before his injuries set in, Thomas was on a Hall of Fame trajectory as one of the league's premier playmakers, as he averaged 117.5 catches and 1,378 yards per year in his first four seasons. In four years since, he has just 95 receptions for 1,057 yards and has been limited to 20 games.
