The New Orleans Saints receiving corps got a lot better this offseason with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders, the two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver who boasts 11 playoff appearances in his career.

One player eager to get to work with his new teammate is Michael Thomas, the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions during a single season. Thomas spoke about what Sanders brings to New Orleans during a recent conference call with local media.

“I know he comes from championships,” Thomas said. “He’s played in championships. He’s won championships. He’s played at a high level for a long time. He’s a great vet.
