Michael Thomas is all set to take big hits to his bank account as he drew his line in the sand on Thursday when he did not report to training camp with the rest of the team, as he holds firm on his stance for a new contract.
The New Orleans Saints wide receiver is set to make $1.148 million this season as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.
It is no question that the 26-year-old has outplayed his current deal, which is why he is looking for a a contract worth $20 million annually.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter then reported Thomas could be facing fines up to $40,000 for each day of training camp that he misses.
Last season, Thomas caught 125 passes for 1,405 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Saints will kick off the 2019 NFL season at home against the Houston Texans.
