New Orleans Saints receiver Michael Thomas landed a record-breaking five-year, $100 million contract extension early Wednesday morning.

After the news broke, LeBron James and many of Thomas’ peers gave him a shout out on social media.

Saints punter Wil Lutz took his shot to get in on some of the action with a tongue-in-cheek jersey sale.

And, not surprisingly, Los Angeles Chargers holdout Melvin Gordon is all about this action.

The one thing just about everyone agrees on is that Thomas absolutely earned his deal, and that’s not really up for debate. Through three years, he’s hauled in 321 receptions, which is a new NFL record for a player’s first three years in the NFL.
