Saints Report for Training Camp as Michael Thomas Holds Out, Seeking Massive Contract

The Saints are just about 40 days away from the start of the 2019-2020 NFL season, and there are some stories developing. Star receiver Michael Thomas is reportedly holding out of training camp until his contract talks are done. 

Thomas is seeking a $20 million dollar contract, while the Saints have reportedly offered him $18-19 million per year. $20 million would make him the highest-paid wide receiver in the NFL. The two sides have been going back and forth on a deal for some time now. 

According to NFL insider Ian Rapaport Thomas doesn’t plan to attend the camp at the Metairie facility until a new deal is in place. 

The Saints training camp is scheduled to begin Friday, July 26. The schedule will run through August 22. We will update this story as it develops.
