Saints WR Michael Thomas did not report for the start of training camp on Thursday as he angles for a new contract. He's set to make just $1.15 million in the final year of his rookie contract.

Odell Beckham is currently the league's highest-paid WR with an average annual salary of $18 million. We'll see how long this standoff lasts.
