Michael Thomas made headlines for the Saints in 2019 with one of the best receiver seasons that any singular receiver has ever had. However, he followed that season up with a year that all of us hopefully will quickly forget about.
He barely played in half of the games for the Saints last season and when he did play, he didn’t produce nearly as much as he did the year prior. Most fans will blame that on the poor play of his quarterback, who was Taysom Hill for a few games as well.
With the performance that Michael Thomas put up last season, it is not out of the box to think that the Saints could trade him this offseason.
With Tre’Quan Smith and Deonte Harris playing the best they have in their careers, Thomas is looking far less needed than a quarterback is at this point, not only for next year but for the long-term future as well.
The three quarterbacks that we are going to offer Michael Thomas for will be long-term solutions and will be worth the asking price. Here are three realistic, blockbuster trades that the Saints could use to deal Michael Thomas and get their QB of the future.
