Could Kenny Stills be primed to make his return to New Orleans? The Packers are interested in him, and the Texans are listening to offers after using him little throughout the first half of the season.
Stills hasn’t put up big-time numbers this season as one of the Texans more veteran receivers. Having played in seven games this season, Still has just 138 yards on ten receptions.
With the Saints for the first two years of his now eight-year career, the 28-year-old arguably had his best season during his second year in the Big Easy. With Drew Brees, adding Stills for a low-value draft capital, like with Tate, would be worth it.
He may not be used often with Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas, Sanders, Marquez Callaway, and Tre’Quan Smith, but if something happens to Sanders or Thomas’ injuries persist, the Saints could have a competent third-string receiver.
The Texans are also listening to offers for Brandin Cooks, another former Saint, but his price tag likely wouldn’t be worth his potential production in New Orleans. For Stills, a sixth-round pick should be all it takes as the 1-6 Texans stand little chance of making the playoffs.
