Saints, Michael Thomas reach agreement on an ‘incentive-laden one-year deal’

Bang. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that the New Orleans Saints are closing in on an “incentive-laden one-year deal” to keep the 2019 Offensive Player of the Year in town for the 2023 season. Thomas played a big part in recruiting Derek Carr to New Orleans, so it makes sense that he’d want to stick around and help the quarterback as best he can.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter adds that Thomas will return on a $10 million contract flush with incentives that can reach a maximum value of $15 million. It’s a big win for both sides. Thomas gets one more shot with a quarterback he trusts, and the Saints get one of their best players back in the fold — if he can stay healthy.

More to come…
