As a voter for the annual NFL Associated Press awards, I was pretty loud early on that Thomas would get my support of Striker Player of the Year. And he did take home the equipment, becoming only the second receiver to ever win an award (by joining Jerry Rice). The NFL is faster and more electric, but to this day no one is more dominant than this five-year-old professional in New Orleans. And that’s what it’s about.
Thomas joined the NFL in 2016 and immediately caught 92 passes for 1,137 yards. Its production has been growing steadily in 2017 (104 catches, 1,245 yards) and 18 years (125 catches, 1,405 yards), but last year it reached a completely different level. Thomas broke Marvin Harrison̵7;s one-season record with 149 catches and led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,725 - 331 yards more than Julio Jones ‘second-ranked 1394 mark. The crazy part is that Ted Ginn became New Orleans’ second leading wide receiver junior with 30 catches at 421 yards. So when Drew Breeze rolled over, all he knew where the ball was going. But no one could cover № 13. Think the guy has the right Twitter pen: @CantGuardMike.
