Report: Saints have not ruled out possibility of trading Alvin Kamara
NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Sources say that the Saints have not totally ruled out the possibility of trading starting running back Alvin Kamara, but a team trying to land one of the most explosive offensive players in the league will likely have to pay a lofty price.
In a report on trade rumors leading up to the current deadline, Ian Rapoport, Tom Pelissero, and Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network said that Kamara could be on the move if a trade partner is willing to give up, at minimum, a package similar to what the Panthers got for running back Christian McCaffery.
San Francisco was able to land McCaffery after giving up multiple draft picks, including a second, third, and fourth-round pick in the 2023 season plus a fifth-rounder in 2024.
With a 2-5 record before Sunday’s matchup with the Raiders (Oct. 30), the Saints are still only one game out of first place in the NFC South Division. However, a possible trade with Kamara before the deadline would indicate a direction toward building for the future. The Saints are without a first-round pick in 2023 after trading that pick to the Eagles for an extra first in 2022.
With the Saints moving on from Jameis Winston to Andy Dalton midseason at quarterback, they are in search of a franchise cornerstone for the future.
