Could trading Sean Payton be the answer for the New Orleans Saints?

San Francisco 49ers

Whether it’s proven defensive studs like Eric Reid, NaVorro Bowman, or some of their younger guys like DeForest Buckner, Solomon Thomas, Reuben Foster, or Jaquicski Tartt, there are a lot of options here. Outside of Bowman, not many of these names hold the same magnitude as Trumaine Johnson or Aaron Donald.

But a solid package could be conjured up that could help immediately improve the defense. Any deal involving Reid and some of these players or draft picks sounds perfect (maybe tossing into the trade the struggling Kenny Vaccaro to swing more players out of the 49ers and allow Reid to slide right into that safety spot).
