General manager Mickey Loomis told Adam Schein on Mad Dog Sports Radio lately the Saints have had”some conversations” to a new contract for its star receiver but would not go into detail.
“We’ve had some discussions, and I like keeping that close to the vest until there is something to report, but look, we love what Mike’s done for us,” Loomis said. “He is a wonderful player, one of the best at his position in the league, and hopefully we can keep him a Saint for a long time too.”

A second-round pick in 2016, Thomas enters the last period of his rookie contract, place to make $1.148 million — peanuts in comparison to his worth. There is little doubt the Saints would love to maintain their No. 1 target paid and happy.
