Randy Moss shares brutally honest message for Saints WR Michael Thomas
The year 2020 has been weird for plenty of people, and that includes former Ohio State wide receiver, Michael Thomas.
The former Buckeye and star receiver for the New Orleans Saints had a remarkable and record-breaking 2019 season. Unfortunately, 2020 has been much different.
Thomas started the season with an injury in Week 1. Then, he missed time after punching a teammate in practice. After being held out of action for disciplinary reasons stemming from that incident, it looked like Thomas was set to return to action.
Unfortunately, Thomas was held out of action this past Sunday with what was labeled a hamstring injury. During this stretch, Thomas has been the subject of trade rumors, though according to Ian Rapoport, the Saints aren’t shopping him:

This report and the stories of tension coming out of New Orleans led to legendary wide receiver Randy Moss to make some comments about Thomas on ESPN’s Monday Night Countdown.
“I think it’s just for Michael Thomas to understand that this organization built their offense around you, okay,” said Moss, “And all the numbers, all the records that he’s breaking there, where else could he go to break those numbers? Who else is going to be able to get a guy with that contract and bring him in to pick up where he left off?
“But let me say this about their offense: when you have the offense designed around you, and your running back leads the team in receptions, that’s not a winning – that’s not a Super Bowl-winning formula.”
Hopefully Thomas gets healthy quickly and is able to get back to his dominant ways with Drew Brees and the Saints.
