The ongoing drama within the New Orleans Saints organization and star wide receiver Michael Thomas is under a microscope. Due to yet another injury, supposedly, the receiver is out for Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers.
Aside from this news, it has also been rumored that Thomas is on the trade block. With this news, these are the three most likely trade destinations for Thomas.
1. New England Patriots
Trading wide receivers to New England has been a reoccurring transaction over the years. However, the Patriots need a receiving weapon now more than ever. With the amount of roster space they are expected to have next season, they are also built in a way to take on a big contract. From the Saints' point of view, they would get Thomas out of the NFC, which is good news.
2. Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks were pushing hard to get Antonio Brown, but that fell flat. While another receiver doesn't seem like the team's biggest need, they are clearly interested. The addition of Thomas would give them one of the most dangerous wide receiver rooms in the league, and they would be unstoppable with Russell Wilson throwing them the ball.
3. Philadelphia Eagles
Every receiving weapon on the Philadelphia Eagles seemingly gets injured. Clearly, they are in need of receiving talent and would be interested in this trade. From New Orleans' point of view, they could view this as an attack on Thomas, due to the injury history of the Eagles. It's a win-win for both sides.
