The New Orleans Saints continue to make news, but not for any good reasons. This time, the drama continues and the rift between the Saints and 2019 Offensive Player of the Year Michael Thomas appears to grow deeper.
It is well-documented at this point that Thomas is set to miss the first part of the 2021 season due to late-summer surgery. With reports that Michael Thomas failed to return calls from the New Orleans Saints over the first part of the year, Michael Thomas took to Twitter for a bit of subtlety. New Orleans Saints fans and members of the media then repaid the favor, taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations and otherwise weigh in on the situation.
#SaintsTwitter rarely disappoints, so here are some of the best reactions:
I’ll save most of my thoughts for today’s podcast, but I feel like Jimmy Graham and Brandin Cooks‘ situations weren’t as bad and still got traded. I know Michael Thomas is better than both of them, but I just thought I’d mention that.— Chris Rosvoglou (@RosvoglouReport) August 9, 2021

MT13: "they tried to damage your reputation. You saved theirs by not telling your side of the story."
This (likely) stems from @JeffDuncan_ report on how Thomas/team handled offseason ankle surgery. pic.twitter.com/OOd6RqEOEl
