Michael Thomas Becomes Only the Third NFL Receiver Ever to Rack Up at Least 300 Catches and 4,000 Receiving Yards in His First 50 Games

Former Ohio State wideout Michael Thomas came into today's game with the Saints needing only one yard in receptions to become only the third ever player with 300 catches and 4,000 yards receiving. Though it took a little longer than some might've expected (although, given that Drew Brees is injured, maybe not), Thomas got that yard and then some in the first half of the Saints' game against the Seahawks.

Thomas was selected First Team All-Pro last season with 125 catches for over 1400 yards. While those numbers will likely be somewhat more difficult to recreate with Teddy Bridgewater throwing to him, he's still cementing himself as one of the top two or three wide receivers in the NFL.

Saints fans can look forward to watching him tear it up for a long time to come.
