The New Orleans Saints are going to have to go big to get Russell Wilson.

Wilson threw for over 4,200 passing yards. He had 40 touchdowns to go with 13 interceptions as well in 2020. While he did have DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett to throw to, Wilson has been elite for almost a decade.

He’s a superstar, and while he is 32, Wilson would make the Saints Super Bowl contenders immediately. They’d still have Alvin Kamara, Cameron Jordan, and an elite defense. This trade would also be nice cause the Saints should get compensatory picks.

With Deonte Harris stepping up and Emmanuel Sanders under contract, the Saints could remain with a solid receiving corps. This trade makes sense for both parties if New Orleans is willing to part ways with a former Offensive Player of the Year.

That’s a big if though.
