Megadeals Coming For Michael Thomas, Cameron Jordan?

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas can become a free agent after this season, while defensive end Cameron Jordan can become a free agent in 2021. Thomas and Jordan, who are both attending organized team activities, are two of the most underpaid stars at their positions in the NFL. Thomas, 26, will make only $1.15 million in the final year of his rookie deal after averaging 107 catches, 1,262 yards and eight touchdowns per season in his first three years. His 321 catches are the most in history by a receiver in his first three seasons. Thomas could become the first receiver to average $20 million per year. Neither Thomas nor Jordan plan on holding out, and Jordan said he wants to be a "Saints lifer." Jordan's average salary ranks 22nd among 4-3 defensive ends and 3-4 outside linebackers, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Saints Working Out Running Backs Thursday

The New Orleans Saints worked out free-agent running backs Fozzy Whittaker, Rob Kelley and Javorius Allen on Thursday. New Orleans is just looking for some extra backfield depth behind Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray. Allen is probably the most intriguing, but he'd be competing for the No. 3 role with the likes of Dwayne Washington and rookies Devine Ozigbo and A.J. Ouellette.

Cameron Meredith Not Practicing

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Cameron Meredith (knee) is not practicing on Thursday at organized team activities. Hes on the sideline, but they say probably next week he can do a little bit more, wide receivers coach Curtis Johnson said. "But he looks healthy. He looks good. He looks like hes coming along well. Meredith played in only six games in his first year with New Orleans before he landed on Injured Reserve. He also missed all of 2017 with a knee ailment in Chicago. It's not a good sign that Meredith isn't practicing yet, and he won't be on the fantasy radar going into fall drafts.

Alexander Mattison Compared To Latavius Murray

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison, selected late in the third round of the draft, has similarities to Latavius Murray, who previously backed up Dalvin Cook. Mattison, 5-foot-11, 221 pounds, resembles Murray in stature and also had the third most missed tackles of any running back in the draft in 2018. There's little doubt that Cook will be the workhorse in this backfield, but Mattison's workhorse tendencies should mesh well as the complement to Cook. Mattison hopes to contribute between the tackles and by catching passes out of the backfield. Consider Mattison a strong handcuff pick to Cook in 2019.
