New Orleans Saints' first game after their trip to London will be against Seattle on Sunday, October 9, at noon on Fox.

The Saints defeated the Seahawks 13-10 in Week 7 of the 2021 season in their most recent meeting. Expectations

for Michael Thomas are rising as the New Orleans Saints training camp approaches in a few more weeks.

Everyone — Thomas, the team, and their supporters — are trying to put the ankle issue behind them after he missed the

majority of the last two years with it. He has a fantastic opportunity to not only show off his talent to the rest of the

NFL's competitors, but also to resume work on leaving his mark in New Orleans' record books. In light of this, where

does he currently stand and how far can he advance this season? With 5,950 career receiving yards, Thomas is essentially

locked into the No. 4 place, much behind Joe Horn (7,622) in the standings. Thomas has only surpassed that total

once in his NFL career, when he won Offensive Player of the Year with a league-leading 1,725-yard output in 2019

when he and Drew Brees were performing at the pinnacle of their abilities. He would need to put up at least 1,673 yards this year to climb higher
