Michael Thomas is heading into the final year of his rookie contract with the New Orleans Saints.

Thomas isn't stressing about his status and has said he's "pretty certain" things will be handled well by Mickey Loomis and the organization.

The Saints awarded Cameron Jordan with an extension earlier this week and Sean Payton believes Thomas will be next.

"He's been very consistent and he'll be the next one I am sure," Payton said. "Mickey will be working. I know that they probably have already begun discussions. I leave that to those guys to handle. He competes, he is durable, and he is someone that enjoys playing."
