New Orleans Saints: Michael Thomas signs with UTA
In exclusive breaking news, New Orleans Saints superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas has signed with United Talent Agency.
New Orleans Saints superstar wide receiver Michael Thomas is coming off a historic season.
He set the NFL record for most receptions in a single season with 149, passing Marvin Harrison’s past record of 144 in a season. Thomas also led the league in receiving yards, even further proving just how valuable he is.
To add to that, Thomas is one of the league’s highest-paid receivers, signing a nine-figure contract this past offseason.
Michael Thomas is now receiving more publicity than he ever has before. He is gaining a following that can’t be denied. He is arguably the best receiver in the NFL and could be in the running for the best the game has seen by the end of his career.
Because of that, Thomas needs someone to manage all of his publicity for him. That is where United Talent Agency comes in.
According to UTA’s website:
"“At the heart of UTA is a culture of entrepreneurship. Our reach and service to our clients are driven by some of the world’s most seasoned, talented agents, as well as executives with deep expertise in a broad range of disciplines, from data analysis and trend forecasting to public relations and crisis communications. From branding and design to philanthropic outreach, and much more.”"
United Talent Agency will now represent Michael Thomas in all such matters. The news broke first through an exclusive from Variety.com.
“The talent agency will work with Thomas to pursue opportunities across film, TV, licensing and endorsements, as well as speaking, digital media, and publishing, among other areas. Thomas joins UTA’s growing roster of athletic talent which also includes fellow NFL greats Von Miller, Rob Gronkowski, and Charles Woodson.”
That is quite the list of players, including several future Hall of Famers.
It seems like, in terms of where Thomas is headed publically, he is in good hands. If they can take a guy like Rob Gronkowski and spin him into a role model, imagine what they could do when they could do with a really talented role model.
Thomas truly is a receiver that players and fans should look up to. This partnership should only enhance the coverage fans get of their star wide receiver.
Michael Thomas is performing his best on the field for the New Orleans Saints, and now he will be producing his best off the field with United Talent Agency.
