Michael Thomas has a had a very disappointing season thus far.  Thomas has played in only one game this season, which have lead some to wonder whether the Saints may be hoping someone will make the team an offer it can’t refuse.

Now it appears Thomas is the one trying to get a deal done.

According to Pro Football Talk:

Whether the Saints are or aren’t interested in hearing what someone may be willing to offer before next Tuesday, November 3, this much is true: The Thomas camp has tried to get another team to make the Saints an offer for the man who set the single-season receiving record in 2019.

No offer has been made to the Saints, and at this point the belief is that no offer will be made.

It’s unclear what it would take to get Thomas. Although the move would result in the Saints absorbing a $20 million cap charge, there’s surely a package of players and picks that would get them to consider it.

Thomas set an NFL record last season with 149 receptions, and he also led the league with 1,725 receiving yards.

Thomas is in the second year of a five-year, $100 million contract extension, with $61 million guaranteed. A trade would result in the Saints taking a salary cap hit of $20 million.

So probably not happening.  Thomas is too good to lose.
