Michael Thomas has received the extension he desired.
The New Orleans Saints star wideout has agreed to a five-year extension worth $100 million on Wednesday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports. Thomas' contract includes $61 million in guarantees, per Rapoport.
The deal makes Thomas the highest-paid receiver in NFL history.
Entering the fourth year of his rookie contract, Thomas didn't report to Saints training camp in order to help speed up the process of a deserved extension.
