3 reasons the New Orleans Saints should trade for David Njoku
Reason No. 1 the Saints should trade for Njoku: His Youth.
The first reason the Saints should make a push for David Njoku now is because of his age — his youth will be a valuable factor. Njoku has only spent three years in the NFL, 2020 will be his fourth year since being drafted.
Current New Orleans Saints tight end Jared Cook has been in the league since 2009. This next year will be Cook’s eleventh year in the NFL. For the position he plays, being in the league for longer than ten years is above the average.
Cook will most likely have a few years left to his name. While his numbers are still starting tight end worthy, as he gets older he will continue to decline in numbers like what we have seen with quarterback Drew Brees.
David Njoku, who was drafted in 2017, is still very young and fresh. He was never given a chance in Cleveland. If he could come to the Saints and spend a couple of years with Cook and Brees, he has a good chance to be a star at his position for years to come.
