New Orleans Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas is fired up about Chris Olave joining the team.

The Saints traded up from No. 16 to No. 11 to get Thomas some help on the other side of the field. Thomas definitely appreciates that, based on this tweet.

Thomas is expected to be back on the field in 2022 after missing the entire 2021 season. He and Olave will likely form a dynamic duo, based on their production over the last few years.

Thomas last played in 2020 and finished with 438 yards off 40 receptions. Before that, he had four straight seasons of 1,100+ receiving yards and 32 combined touchdowns.

Olave played four seasons at Ohio State and had 700+ receiving yards in three of those seasons.

They'll both have a healthy Jameis Winston throwing them the ball after he re-signed with the Saints when free agency opened.

Defensive backs are going to have to be on high alert next season when both receivers are on the field.
