Number Two: Alvin Kamara

I understand that this is an unpopular opinion, but trading away Alvin Kamara makes too much sense.

Kamara, the Saints star running back, is on a contract year meaning his rookie deal is set to expire following the 2020 season, and the Saints will be forced to pay him the big bucks he’s worth or let him hit the free-agent market.

Alvin Kamara is simply too good to let hit the free-agent market, but also likely too expensive for the Saints to keep on the team. A trade makes the most sense.

The three-time Pro Bowler has proven he can be an elusive running back and had made the end zone his best friend throughout his NFL career, but one could argue a large portion of his success came because of the quarterback he had throwing him the ball and the offensive line he had creating lanes.

Also Kamara took a step back in 2019, showing a more vulnerable side to his game. Kamara has yet to record a 1,000 yard rushing season, but he likely would have if he remained healthy for the entirety of the 2019 season.

The Saints could likely land a great pick for Kamara’s services or deal him for a player who could fill a bigger role.
