Michael Thomas has reached an agreement with the New Orleans Saints on a five-year, $100 million extensions that include $61 million guaranteed and makes him the NFL’s highest-paid wide receiver, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday.
Thomas is now tied to the Saints for the next six years, through the 2024 season.
