Sources expect a new deal between the Saints and receiver Michael Thomas before the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Dianna Russini, who also reported that the Saints are comfortable making him the highest-paid receiver in the game. That last part should come as no surprise, considering Thomas has established himself as a first-team All-Pro. The bigger question is how much more Thomas will make than Odell Beckham Jr., who currently leads all receivers with an average salary between $18-19 million per year and a total of $65 million in guarantees.

The Saints signed veteran receiver Rishard Matthews after his three-day minicamp tryout and released former LSU receiver Travin Dural. Matthews, 29, should have a legitimate shot at earning a roster spot with the Saints behind projected starters Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. – though the competition is crowded with young receivers like Tre'Quan Smith, Cameron Meredith, Keith Kirkwood, Austin Carr and others. Matthews was the Titans' leading receiver from 2016-2017 with 118 catches for 1,740 yards and 13 touchdowns. But the 6-foot, 217-pounder asked for his release last year when his role diminished. He wound up playing a total of just eight games with five catches combined for the Titans and Jets in 2018. ... Matthews began his career with the Dolphins from 2012-2015 when current Saints assistants Dan Campbell and Darren Rizzi were in Miami.

Drew Brees said his lawsuit against a jeweler in San Diego has been "very stressful" and it was tough being away from two practices over the last two weeks for the trial because "I'm the quarterback of this football team." But he said there were some things out of his control with the timing that "we had to take care of."
