2. Michael Thomas

If you told Saints fans in 2019 that Michael Thomas would not be the same guy after that season, people probably wouldn't have believed you. Thomas was so good during that 2019 season and it felt like he was still trending upwards at that point but nope -- Turns out that was the end of the road for Thomas' domination in a Saints uniform.

Injuries have kept Thomas sidelined over the past three seasons with him missing all of 2021 and only playing in three games this past season.

I will say that when Thomas was on the field in 2022, he looked good! The former second-round pick hauled in at least five catches in each of his three games this past season and had two touchdowns in the season-opener. There was a lot to like about Thomas early on.

Unfortunately, his toe injury was too much to handle and he didn't play again after the Week 3 loss to Carolina. It's very likely that Thomas has played his final game as a member of the New Orleans Saints.
