Saints, Michael Thomas Relationship Getting Worse



Michael Thomas

The relationship between the New Orleans Saints and All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas is reportedly not in a good place, and a trade could eventually become a possibility, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Complicating any potential deal would be Thomas’ health issues, which would delay such a trade. Thomas is likely to begin the 2021 regular season on the PUP list, which would drag out any potential trade discussions.

Additionally, the Saints would be left with $8 million in dead money in 2021 if they were to deal Thomas, and that number skyrockets to $22 million in dead money for the 2022 season, which would be really tough to take on especially with the Saints current cap situation.
