Thomas highlights Saints preseason

The New Orleans Saints are coming off of a loss to the Houston Texans. The Saints’ offense performed miserably throughout the game as they only managed to generate nine points and 260 yards of offense.

One of the bright spots, however, has been Saint’s rookie receiver Michael Thomas. Thomas has caught 5 passes for 72 yards in the preseason so far. Additionally, Thomas has been receiving praise around the league before he’s even played his first regular season game.

Texans pro bowl wide receiver Deandre Hopkins complimented Thomas last week as the Saints and Texans practiced together in preperation of their preseason game.

“He (Micheal Thomas) reminds me a lot of myself,” Hopkins told

The Saints return to the Superdome to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday, Aug. 26 in their second to last preseason game before they begin regular season play on Sept. 11 against the Oakland Raiders.
