If Michael Thomas Isn't Planning On Switching To Linebacker Then I'm Genuinely Fearful For NFL Corners
Well, I think we might have our answer after all. I was a wee bit concerned that no information had come out in regards to why Michael Thomas had an excused absence from attending the Saints' mandatory mini-camp, but clearly it was just a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of his own teammates. I thought I'd be looking closer for him come training camp, but if he wants to keep overhead pressing all-terrain vehicles through traffic as a way to start opening up his sweat glands in the morning then maybe he's better off not joining the team until their tasked with tackling targets that aren't chiseled out of granite.
As if the only player in NFL history to record 200 receptions over his first two seasons wasn't an intimidating enough presence on the practice field prior to this offseason, now his elite level hand-fighting is liable to do enough damage to leave a cornerback's healthcare liable? Anyone who plans on covering the Saints' #1 wideout this season is going to need safety, and I'm most certainly not talking about another inferior mortal. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, but I'd argue this one speaks of 1,000 reps...per day, as it damn near rendered me speechless. I'm pretty sure Michael Thomas departed the Pro Bowl, went straight from the airport to the gym, and the only time he's left it since was to drop by OTA's and let the Saints know he's switching from wide receiver to weapon of mass destruction...
