Alvin Kamara isn't the only Saints player who could join the Ravens this offseason

This wouldn't be all that surprising.

After eight years together, Michael Thomas and the New Orleans Saints' time together is likely coming to an end. Thomas, who the Saints drafted in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, hasn't been much of a factor for the offense over the past four seasons, tallying just 1,057 yards and four touchdowns combined during that time.

To put that into perspective, Thomas had over 1,700 yards and nine touchdowns during his record-breaking 2019 campaign. He was electric that year and that's why the Saints signed him to an extension that will go down in the history books as one of the worst extension decisions in franchise history.

Thomas deserved the extension, no doubt, but what he did after signing it was less than ideal. Now, Thomas' contract is set to void and he'll be a free agent this spring. ESPN listed the Baltimore Ravens as a potential landing spot for the Saints wideout.

"Michael Thomas' contract with the Saints is set to void, making him a free agent. A few scouts pointed out Baltimore as a good fit. The Ravens likely won't re-sign Odell Beckham Jr., and they value established veterans at the receiver position. But a reunion with former New Orleans coach Sean Payton in Denver also makes sense. "When he's out there and healthy, he affects the game," an NFC scout said."


Could Michael Thomas end up in Baltimore?

As the blurb mentions, the Ravens are likely moving on from Odell Beckham Jr., who, like Thomas, has been battling injuries in recent years. He did have over 500 yards receiving and three touchdowns this past season compared to Thomas' 448 yards and one touchdown.

Thomas showed this past season that, when healthy, he is still a solid option to have on the field. The problem, however, has been that he's struggled mightily to stay healthy and causes a lot of drama. Thomas could use a change of scenery and the Ravens do make a lot of sense for him. There are better receiver options on Baltimore's offense so Thomas going down wouldn't tank the Ravens' season but if he can remain healthy, that'd be a great weapon for Lamar Jackson to have.

The Ravens have been a popular hypothetical landing spot for Saints players potentially moving on this offseason, as Alvin Kamara was also linked to Baltimore earlier in the offseason. If both Kamara and Thomas ended up in Baltimore and ended up balling out, it'd be a tough pill for Saints fans to swallow.
