It’s no secret that the New Orleans Saints have one of, if not the best receiver in football in Michael Thomas. He has some of the best hands in football, is a touchdown beast, and is a good enough skill player to build an entire team around.
By his standards, he had a relatively quiet game in the Wild Card round by his standards, only recording seven catches for 70 yards. This was partially because Thomas was being double-teamed while the Vikings threw a few complicated schemes at him, limiting his innate ability to find the gaps in the middle of a defense.
While the Saints have had one of the most prolific offenses in football over the past five years, they surprisingly lack wide receiver depth beyond Thomas. While running back Alvin Kamara can be a threat out of the backfield, the snaps that were taken by Ted Ginn Jr. and Tre’Quan Smith could be taken by a much more talented pass catcher.
That’s where A.J. Green comes into the occasion. The team inquired earlier in the season about trying to trade for him, but the Bengals wouldn’t budge. That won’t be an issue now, with Green being an unrestricted free agent.
