Saints GM: New deal for Michael Thomas in discussion
Another guy in line for a money back is receiver Michael Thomas after Cameron Jordan’s contract was extended by the New Orleans Saints last week.
Those discussions are under way.

General manager Mickey Loomis told Adam Schein on Mad Dog Sports Radio recently the Saints have had”some discussions” about a new contract to its star receiver but would not go into detail.
“We’ve had some discussions, and I enjoy 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 very best in his position in the league, and hopefully we can keep him a Saint for quite a while as well.”
Target being received by the Saints go-to, Thomas has become one of the dangers in the NFL, compiling yards along with a least 90 catches each of his three seasons. As Drew Brees’ security blanket, the wideout is coming off a 1,405-yard season.
A second-round pick in 2016, Thomas enters the final season of his rookie contract, set to make $1.148 million — peanuts in comparison to his values. There is very little doubt that the Saints would like to keep their No. 1 goal happy and paid. If it doesn’t happen within the upcoming few months the franchise tag appears to be likely for the star receiver.
