Michael Thomas is seeking a new deal with the New Orleans Saints that would make him the highest-paid wide receiver in NFL history.

Thomas is seeking $22 million annually. No receiver has an average salary of $20 million.

Odell Beckham, who has a contract worth $18 million per season, is currently the NFL's highest-paid receiver.

The Saints want to reward Thomas with a new deal, but aren't ready to meet his asking price.
