It has been stated in recent days that the New Orleans Saints are looking to trade Malcom Brown. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport was the first to report that Brown is apparently on the trading block.

Unfortunately, this is most likely going to become the norm with the Saints trying to get rid of so many salaries to come below the cap number this year. Trading away Malcom Brown would eliminate roughly $5 million from the black and gold’s salary cap.

Because of that, it leaves him as a strong trade candidate and even release candidate if they can’t find a trade partner.

Rumors have begun circulating around the New Orleans Saints about the possibility of them trading defensive tackle Malcom Brown.

Trading Brown would also open up a second hole in the Saints’ interior defensive lineman. With Sheldon Rankins a free agent this year and the team unlikely to sign him back, they could also be opening up another defensive need.

Before we talk about the team releasing Brown, let’s take a dive into what the team might be able to get for the defensive tackle who is going into the final year of his contract. Here are three of the top trade scenarios the Saints should explore.
