The contract is good through the 2024 season, so Thomas won't be going anywhere soon, Saints fans.

Last season, Thomas set franchise records with 125 catches, 1,405 yards, and catching nine touchdown passes. The Saints start the preseason next Friday, August 9th in New Orleans against the Vikings.
