It has already been reported that the Saints were willing to make him the highest paid WR in the game, which would put him at around $18 million per season.
It seems Thomas thinks he deserves way more.
Jeff Duncan of Nola.com notes that the two sides are roughly $4 million apart on extension talks, with Thomas just know bringing his number down to $22 million a year.
If he came down to $22 million, where exactly was the number before that? That is just an absurd amount of money for a guy who is good, but not viewed in the top-3 of WR’s in the game right now.
In his first three seasons as a pro, Thomas has hauled in 321 passes on of 417 targets for 3,787 yards and 23 touchdowns.
These negotiations might stretch well into training camp.
