Saints Trade Rumors: 5 post-Week 1 linebacker trade targets
Germaine Pratt, Cincinnati Bengals
Germaine Pratt is a second-year linebacker out of North Carolina State. He was drafted in 2019 in the third round by the Bengals. Last year, he played in 16 games but only started nine of those games. He had 76 tackles and four hits on the quarterback in that year.
Unfortunately for Pratt, the Bengals were the worst team in football last year. This year, they are looking to be better with Joe Burrow, but they may not be going far. In fact, they should already start for capital next year.
In his first game of the year, Pratt started and logged 12 total tackles. He grabbed seven solos and assisted on five of them. He didn’t add much else, but with a line like the Saints have, they will take care of the quarterback.
At the Saints level, Pratt will just need to perform the way he did today for the rest of the season. Pratt isn’t the best linebacker on this list, but he is definitely one that the Bengals could give up and that the Saints could use.
