Things just got ridiculous in the past hour for the New Orleans Saints.
It started with safety Rafael Bush, who was reportedly tendered as per Tom Pelissero.
However, the craziest news just came out via ESPN’s Adam Schefter. As per the report, the Saints are potentially shopping running back Pierre Thomas and wide receiver Lance Moore, and could be open to trading running back Darren Sproles.
We have heard that Moore and Thomas could be cap casualties for the team, but this has to be some shocking news about Darren Sproles. Sproles has been a huge boost to the Saints offense since joining the team in 2011, and is entering the final season of his contract with the team. Sproles had a very off-year for the team.
We’ve talked a lot about the impact of Jimmy Graham’s contract to the team, and to be honest, we’re seeing some of the effects of it with this rumor. Only time will tell what will happen to these three, but it doesn’t exactly look to be good news.
Pierre Thomas, Lance Moore, and Darren Sproles definitely have trade value, there’s no question about it.
Stay tuned, and we’ll bring you the latest as it unfolds!
