Re: Kenner PD called out to home of Saints Wide Receiver Michael Thomas

From everything I've read about this the whole thing stinks.
Wouldn't surprise me if that contractor was seeking a "payday" by seeking confrontation with MT.

You do realize that Thomas' contract was reworked and is incentive based, right? His salary matches exactly what he provides because one is dependent upon the other.

I would love a salary like that. Just give me $10 million a year straight up and then kick in a few million or not depending on my performance. That way it will exactly match what I provide.

The question is, how much more than $10 million a year is 49 yards a game and 2 TD season total pace worth?

The fact is, Thomas's contract is not incentive based, it simply includes incentives. Incentives based would be a league minimum or close base salary with everything dependent on incentives. The fact is, Thomas' salary is 70% base salary (converted to signing bonus). He gets $10 million no matter what. It is 30% incentives which is hardly incentives based, just a cherry on top. And those incentives are just for being active, not elite. Thomas is set to earn about $14 million this year for showing up and hauling in 50 yards a game with sparse TDs on a mediocre team. He is showing up, but his performance is is not meeting his paycheck. At this point in his career he is more of a player who should be earning $5 million base salary plus incentives that don't bring his salary above $8 million total unless he is actually putting up #1 WR numbers. Nobody needs to be paying over $10 million a year for an aging injury prone #2/3 caliber receiver. I don't really have concerns about Thomas' attitude but he is producing like an $8 million a year receiver this year and being paid almost double that.

Re: Kenner PD called out to home of Saints Wide Receiver Michael Thomas

I looked into it more and Thomas's contract is structured a bit different than I thought. I thought $10 million was guaranteed if he was on the roster day 1 with how the contract was described on overthecap. Its actually about $6.25 million guaranteed, $3.75 million bonuses for games on roster/active, and $5 million in performance incentives. Michael Thomas was on pace to earn all of the roster/active bonuses and none of the performance incentives as he was not on pace for 100 catches or anything #1 WR like. If he is seriously hurt and out for the year, Thomas will earn about $8.5 million this year.
