Mickey Loomis says the New Orleans Saints have had "some conversations" about a new contract for Michael Thomas.

It was expected that Thomas would be next in line for a new deal after Cameron Jordan received an extension last week.

"We've had some conversations, and I like keeping that close to the vest until there's something to report, but look, we love what Mike's done for us," Loomis said. "He's a fantastic player, one of the best at his position in the league, and hopefully we can keep him a Saint for a long time as well."

Thomas is entering the final year of his rookie deal, which is set to pay him $1.148 million. He has produced at least 90 receptions and 1,000-plus yards in each of his three professional seasons.
