The New Orleans Saints were back on the field for OTA’s, and Michael Thomas was out there with them. Huge news, Saints expect WR Mike Thomas to be ready to go by training camp, but it is great to have him out there.
Getting the chemistry between Mike and Derek Carr will be so important. Carr has had some unreal connections with his WR 1’s throughout his career and recently a historic year by Davante Adams. Carr has been working with all the WR’s and seem to have some early great chemistry.
Chris Olave and Juwan Johnson continue to show out in OTA’s, Johnson has been one of Carr’s favorite targets early on. They have connected multiple times in red zone offense drills. Olave has made numerous eye-opening catches as well.

Highlight showings from WR Chris Olave and CB Alontae Taylor. TE Juwan Johnson and QB Derek Carr have a great connection growing.
Among those absent Rashid Shaheed and Khalen Saunders are new absences. Taysom Hill, Marshon Lattimore, and Alvin Kamara all have missed the entirety of OTA’s. Next up is the mandatory minicamp.
