The New Orleans Saints have been one of the most rumored teams in the NFL over the past couple of weeks. The black and gold have to get below the salary cap and that has led to half their team being released, restructured, or on the trading block.

The latest two names to drop among a plethora of others are wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and running back Latavius Murray. Both of them are expendable which means that this was bound to be news sooner or later.

With Emmanuel Sanders officially rumored to be on the Saints’ trading block, these are the teams that will come calling for the receiver.

Emmanuel Sanders only spent one year with the team after being signed to a two-year deal in the last offseason. With Michael Thomas being injured for the majority of the season, Sanders stepped up like he needed to.

However, he is costing the team $12 million this year. If they trade him, then they save that entire $12 million. If they don’t find a suitor for him, then he will still save the team $8.5 million if they release him after June 1, 2021.

Here are four teams that are searching for a wide receiver of Emmanuel Sanders caliber.
