Sean Payton, dissatisfied with Michael Thomas’ discharge

The Saints’ first season without Drew Brees since 2005 will get off to a more tumultuous start than expected for Sean Payton due to the fact that Michael Thomas will not be able to play for the first six weeks of the calendar.

The stellar wide receiver’s demise apparently took the New Orleans coach, who indicated that you want the surgery Thomas underwent would have happened earlier.

“It is disappointing and we will work with the players we have. The surgery was done, we wish it had happened sooner“He said during the first day of the training camp.” In retrospect, I would have preferred the operation to be earlier, but it didn’t happen, that’s the way things are. “

Payton’s annoyance is justified considering that since Thomas came to the NFL in 2016, he has been the Saints’ most effective receiver. In addition to accumulating 5,950 yards and 32 touchdowns, Ohio State’s product led New Orleans in three consecutive seasons in receiving yards (2017-19).

Calm in the Superdome

Although Thomas will start the year on injured reserve, the Saints are comfortable with wide receivers on the roster. “We like our body of receivers more than some of the press do.”said general manager Mickey Loomis.

At the moment, New Orleans has Tre’Quan Smith, Deonte Harris, Marquez Callaway, el recién contratado Chris Hogan, Lil’Jordan Humphrey, Jake Lampman, Jake McCleskey, Easop Winston Jr. and the newbie Kawaan Baker on the roster.
