New Orleans Saints star wide receiver Michael Thomas reportedly will undergo multiple surgeries this offseason.

Thomas reportedly considered the fact that it was likely quarterback Drew Brees’ final season in the NFL and tried to play through the injury for him.

Thomas was held without a catch in the Saints’ playoff loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Due to injury, Thomas appeared in just seven regular season games this season.

After catching a league-high 149 passes for 1,725 yards during the 2019 campaign, Thomas’ numbers took a huge hit in 2020.

He caught just 40 passes for 438 yards. He also failed to catch a touchdown pass this season.

The Saints will hope that Thomas can get healthy for next year as they will likely have a new quarterback under center for the 2021 campaign.

New Orleans has been a staple in the NFL playoffs, but it has not been able to make a Super Bowl appearance since it won the title back in 2010.
