Michael Thomas agrees to 5 year 100 million extension

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm just glad it's over and the hold out didn't extend into the season. As far as the money goes if you haven't realized by now that Mickey plays the cap like Clapton plays the guitar, you haven't been paying ...

Everyone knows the NFC South is the division of playmakers.
On other sites, the joke about the NFC South has usually been that it's the "all offense, no defense" division. That has kinda changed the last two years with us developing a defense.

He’s going to be essential to this offense post Drew Brees. A young QB is going to need elite receiver like Thomas to throw to as he develops. Drew made a career out of making decent receivers look like Pro Bowlers. That’s not likely to happen again.

I believe this is ‘getting the big sweet money’, being ‘shown the Quan’

Re: Michael Thomas agrees to 5 year 100 million extension

I was looking at MT's numbers ...

92 - 1100 yards
104 - 1250 yards
125 - 1400 yards (ridiculous numbers)

And at least 22 TD's to go with it.

MT was our passing offense last year, while the rest couldn't find a way to beat single coverage.

Good for him and congrats on that shiny new contract.

Time to go get it.

I'm assuming this means Drew retires after this year. No way the Saints have 2-20 million players and a 15 million player. I would have much rather signed AK......

I love AK, but he would be easier to replace than Thomas. And Thomas should have a much longer career barring injury.

This isn't 2000, voodoo. Do you not understand the current cap dynamics? Not only can you have two $20M and one $15M player in two years, but it be the norm. Hell, you can easily have four or five $20M players before long. The cap is climbing at around 7% to 8% each year. It is expected that with the new CBA in 2020 will bring an additional huge jump in the cap with the new gambling and online revenues being rolled in. And players will be demanding an even larger piece of the pie.

Payton has been trying to find a Kamara ever since he signed on with the Saints. Reggie Bush fell short, as did Darren Sproles. Others came and left, but there has only been one Alvin Kamara. He cannot be replaced. And he will be affordable in today's new escalating cap environment.
