Saints' Thomas pulls celebrates TD with cell phone

Cornerback #37 Sam Shields of The Los Angeles Rams before the 33-31 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in an NFL season game five match at Century Link field

New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl wide receiver Michael Thomas filled up the stat sheet in yesterday's 45-35 win over the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams, finishing with 12 catches for 211 yards, one touchdown and one memorable touchdown celebration.

Horn, now 46, told Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune he was working out by himself in a gym in MS when he witnessed Thomas' tribute. "It took a lot of courage. and I appreciate that, and I'll never forget that", Horn said. "That's something that some kids don't do, to pay homage to an old soul". His franchise records for receiving TDs in a season (11), yards in a year (1,399) and career TDs (50) have all been bested.

"Nah, nah, nah. No cell phones", Vick tells us.

As many fans were quick to point out, the move was a homage to former Saints star Joe Horn, who's famous for pulling a similar stunt in a 2004 game against the Giants. The former Saints WR said he texted Thomas and "thanked him for doing what most athletes in his position would never do". "I loved the swagger that he brought. I definitely was thinking about it, but I'm happy I waited for that moment". The hardest challenge is he's such a great player and they're such a great team, especially offensively, that they're going to get theirs. As Duncan also revealed, Horn said he went online immediately after seeing the celebration and bought Thomas' jersey.

Horn's end zone call, however, was even more costly, with the National Football League levying a $30,000 fine for the Saints standout's celebration.
