Saints Wide Receiver Michael Thomas Looks Strong In Off-season Work
After just two seasons, the New Orleans Saints Wide Receiver Michael Thomas has become one of the top receivers in the NFL. He's been setting league records, including the record for for most catches in a player’s first two seasons. The former Ohio State Buckeye says he’s not complacent with what he’s done.
Thomas has been looking strong in off-season OTAs, and fans can see him in action next week during an open to the public mini-camp at the team’s training facility, from Tuesday to Thursday, beginning at 11AM each day.
This season, Thomas will have some extra help as the Saints have added former Chicago Bear Cam Meredith to the receiving corps.
Meredith missed all of 2017 due to injury, but put together an impressive season back in 2016, where he was able to pull down 66 catches for 888 yards and 4 touchdowns. Which might not sound tremendous, but he was catching passes from a combination of Jay Cutler (5 starts), Matt Barkley (6 starts), and Brian Hoyer (5 starts) that season. He led the team in receiving that year, over stars Alshon Jeffery and Jordan Howard.
If Thomas and Meredith stay healthy this year, the Saints could have one of the top 1-2 combos in the NFL.
