Michael Thomas has injury setback, return to the Saints is still unclear

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Well, ATL Braves just won the World Series after losing their best player, Ronald Acuña Jr., one game before the All Star Break (which MLB foolishly moved from ATL)... They're the first team since 1964 Cardinals to win the World ...

Well, ATL Braves just won the World Series after losing their best player, Ronald Acuña Jr., one game before the All Star Break (which MLB foolishly moved from ATL)...

They're the first team since 1964 Cardinals to win the World Series after being sub .500 at the AllStar Break; so they found a way to get it done, against some good teams...

As deep and talented as this team still is, including at QB and WR; and with reinforcement designated to return, I'm all in with this team irregardless...

Saints were in the loop. They couldn't justify the price tags for the WR trade attempts yesterday. This is a BB type of move, and a smart one as well. We'll have bigger cap space next year for bigger moves.

I get it going “safe” with olineman early but you also need playmakers at skilled positions. 2022 draft needs to focus more on the wideout spot.

We don’t have a #1 or legit 2 on the roster.


I agree, they had that Drew had turned no named guys into solid guys mentality and got complacent. Now it’s biting them in the ass. Should of been drafted a receiver or two the past couple of years, knowing a twilight Drew needed actual talented receivers.



I’m going to be honest and people might not like this take but the saints have some blame in this too. Having him in a game in garbage time to get this injury in the first place. That game was over and you got your starters out there. And this medical staff is still questionable with these injuries we’ve been having seems to get worse every year. Guys out for long periods of time

Is it possible to improve on perfection?

Did Thomas have the procedure at Ochsner? When things go south, or there's complications, you never get where it's done, only when it goes right...

What a head case he turned into in such a short time. The guy came in humble and hungry, but as soon as he got paid he was completely different.

Doubt we see him suit up again as a saint.
Trade for what? A shrimp po-boy and a bag of Chee-Weez?

He is injured. An injured player has no value. Clearly this isn't a situation where rubbing some dirt on it will make it better.

I don't care if the Saints trade MT, just get him off the team and be done. The Saints can go another year without a high price QB so if MT creates dead cap space then no problem.
