The Michael Thomas trade talks haven’t died down despite the New Orleans Saints not having a reliable option behind him on the depth chart. It’s going to be a storyline that we hear about until the regular season kicks off and even then, Thomas isn’t necessarily safe from being on the trade block.
Trading Thomas doesn’t make much sense on the surface due to the lack of depth behind him but at the same time, if the season goes south for the team, shipping Thomas elsewhere could help them shed his expensive contract while also earning them a few extra draft picks. Both of these could go a long way toward helping this team compete in the future.
If the Saints do indeed trade Thomas, there are several teams that would be interested in his services. Honestly, most teams in the league would express interest in the former second-round pick but the Saints probably won’t be sending him to a team in the NFC so I narrowed this list down to four AFC teams that could use another wide receiver.
Let’s check out the teams that could be great landing spots for Thomas should the Saints decide to trade him.
