Michael Thomas got paid! Michael Thomas and the Saints have reached a historic contract over night. Thomas now will be the highest paid wide out in the league.
The deal will see him get 61 million guaranteed over the five seasons. Thomas has 320 receptions and 3700 yards in his first three seasons in the league.
This is the first major hold out to conclude and a contract that is going to set the tone for future star receivers. Thomas is arguably a top three wide out in the league. He is Drew Brees go to guy. Paying him was in the best interest of the club. Great move by the Saints.
Time to play football.
