Michael Thomas often wouldn’t practice all week, yet would still play in games, at much less than 100%, and with pain medication. The coaches told him even as injured as he was, they were much better off with him than without him. But now will need surgery. https://t.co/9YdSgVVbRW

While Aaron Glenn won’t end up as a head coach this cycle, there is a good chance the #Saints secondary coach ends up as a defensive coordinator. He’s a strong option at a few different places. https://t.co/TWP8h5zpX4
