With the trade deadline looming, Gordon could be a much cheaper option.
The number one source of rumors among the National Football League right now is the trade deadline arriving on October 29th at 4 p.m. EST. Everyone is talking about who we can get and what we would have to give up to get them.
I’m here to tell you that the Saints could add top-level talent for no cost to the team whatsoever. Like Dez Brant, Gordon could just be signed if he is indeed waived by the New England Patriots, which should still eventually happen.
Now, he would add a monetary charge to the team in the salary cap, but in terms of players or picks to give up in demand of adding talent in pursuit of a Super Bowl run, Josh Gordon is angel-sent.
Assuming he stays healthy, Gordon could be a better fit for the Saints than any trade they could make before the deadline. However, as aforementioned, he’d impact their salary cap, something they don’t have much of.
If the play is to get Gordon, the Saints would likely not target anyone prior to that deadline in just a few days.
