3 potential trade targets that’d make the Saints immediate title favorites
Jamal Adams wants out of New York.
While the Jets may try to mend the relationship and retain the superstar safety, it almost seems at a point where there is no going back. Adams is on a massive contract, hurting his trade value. However, he’ll still draw a large package in return.
A top-ten pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Adams will make just over $7 million this season and over $9 million next season, easily the highest amount of his four-year contract according to Spotrac. He signed a deal worth $22.3 million in 2017.
The Saints saved almost $8 million by releasing Larry Warford so they should have the cap space to make such a trade.
With Malcolm Jenkins and Marcus Williams on the team, the Saints may not truly need a safety, but this team is loaded across the board so getting an upgrade for either could be beneficial. Adams is a strong safety so he’d be taking over most of Jenkins’ duties.
The two-time Pro Bowlers and 2019 All-Pro, Adams recorded 71 tackles and 6.5 sacks last season. He’d be an upgrade that took the team to the next level, but with Jenkins, it likely wouldn’t be worth it.
