New Orleans Saints: 5 trade packages to move Alvin Kamara
Speaking of running backs that held out and then eventually left because their team wouldn’t pay their paycheck — enter the Pittsburgh Steelers. They dealt with Le’Veon Bell two years ago and eventually let him go and decided to start James Conner.
After a great first year showing, last year didn’t pan out as the Steelers had hoped. While it is difficult with your starting quarterback out for the season, Conner still didn’t look like a starting running back that they could rely on.
That is where the need comes in. The Steelers could afford to pay Kamara the money he would require, and they are desperate to get back to the Super Bowl before Ben retires. The Saints would also get some needed wide receiver help.
The sophomore receiver showed great potential last year even with a backup and a backup-backup quarterback in the driver’s seat. Give Washington Drew Brees and he could become the long-term answer for the Saints.
