The New Orleans Saints will be looking to make one more run with superstar QB Drew Brees at the helm, and they could improve their roster with a trade.
The San Francisco 49ers, coming off a Super Bowl appearance, have made some of their players available for trade ahead of Thursday’s draft. Should the New Orleans Saints look to snag any of the four?
What’s the price tag for Marquise Goodwin, a speedy wide receiver that would work well as the Saints’ No. 3 option? How about Kwon Alexander or Dee Ford, two players that would be welcome in the Big Easy at the right price?
Entering the NFL, the Saints really don’t have a single weakness. They have some spots where they could upgrade, but if they wouldn’t drop as NFC South favorites if they drafted a player like Jordan Love or Jonathan Taylor.
That said, the Saints, a cap-strapped team, don’t have the space to bring in a player like Ford. The most intriguing player to New Orleans should be wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.
The receiver caught 12 balls on 21 targets, starting six games. After losing Emmanuel Sanders to our very own Saints, the 49ers need some help at receiver, but Goodwin is clearly no their ideal option to take over as the main threat on the offense.
Safety Jaquiski Tartt, a name we’ve yet to mention, is also intriguing. D.J. Swearinger and Malcolm Jenkins are both aging, and while Marcus Williams and C.J. Gardner-Johnson are there, his presence may be the second-most intriguing of the four potential targets.
For now, we’ll assume, given the Saints’ cap limitations that they aren’t in the market for any of them, but with the draft in the coming days, that could very well change.
