The New Orleans Saints have several important questions to answer this offseason. One thing that must be decided is the future of wide receiver Michael Thomas, who missed the entire 2021 campaign after mishandling his injury rehab last summer.
Michael Thomas Trade
It's been theorized that Thomas or Saints could look to move on, and now New Orleans' stance on a potential trade has been revealed.
Michael Thomas Trade Rumors
The Athletic's Katherine Terrell reports that "a lot of signs have shown [the Saints] don’t have any intention" of trading Thomas this offseason. The organization's thoughts on the situation don't get much more clearer than that, and it backs up what other insiders around the league have said so far.
It appears Thomas is ready to put the drama with the team behind him and move forward in 2022. The wideout's lack of effort with his ankle injury last offseason led to delayed surgery and ultimately him missing the entire year, but hopefully, the extended time off will lead to direct results on the field.
When Thomas was last healthy in 2019, he had a standout campaign, leading the league with 149 receptions and 1,725 yards while adding 9 touchdowns. Injuries limited him to just 40 receptions and 438 yards in 2020, his first season under 1,000 yards as a pro.
The Saints' wide receiver corps was severely hurt by their top wideout's absence. Here's hoping Thomas returns in top form and excels with whoever starts for the Saints next year.
