With the increased news around COVID-19, little news has spurred around the potential holdouts of anyone this year. Joe Mixon of the Cincinnati Bengals has already expressed this possibility for himself — could Kamara be next?
Now, in no way, shape, or form do I want Kamara to hold out or do I want the Saints to trade him.
In order for this to work out, the perfect storm would have to brew. You would not only need Kamara to hold out, but you would also need his price to be higher than the Saints are willing to pay.
Only in that scenario would it be worth the team evaluating a trade for him. However, even if he doesn’t hold out, his price tag might be too high. If the Saints are planning on not re-signing the star running back, a trade would at least get them something from the deal.
The could turn a sign and trade for another star player of they could just offer the remainder of his current contract for a couple of picks in the upcoming draft. Either one of those would be beneficial to the Saints IF and only IF they intend on not re-signing him.
A trade is not out of possibility for the Saints. They have been known over the years to make some pretty bold moves at some random times. If they are in the mood to be bold, these three players could make a splash this season.
