Count Michael Thomas in the lobby who would love to see Russell Wilson in black and gold. The New Orleans Saints recipient shared a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter listing the Saints among a small group of teams. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback would forego his no-trade clause to join his official Instagram account, followed by a photo of Thomas and Wilson together at the Pro Bowl.
That's about as strong as anyone can do right now. Wilson has not requested a deal from Seattle, but it is unusual for him to have given the Seahawks a shortlist of teams that he would approve a deal with. And until the start of the new league year on March 17th, no deals can become official, so Thomas really isn't in a position to say anything of greater substance.
But you have to like the fit of Wilson in New Orleans. Thomas definitely seems to be looking forward to a team. Injuries left him sidelined too often in 2020, but it's worth noting that he followed on from his record-breaking 2019 campaign that was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year. It would surely be tempting to pair Thomas with a quarterback who can do more throws than anyone Thomas has played with - Taysom Hill, Teddy Bridgewater, Jameis Winston, and Drew Brees.
On the other hand - the Seahawks would have to investigate if they could include Thomas in a possible deal for Wilson, right? It is arguably the largest trading chip in New Orleans, considering there is currently no design capital. In any case, the 2021 off-season will be the most exciting in recent history for Saints fans. It sure is the least predictable.
Which saints should be sacrosanct in the face of cap cuts and trade talks in 2021?
