It’s no question that the New Orleans Saints passing game has struggled this year. This has a large part of doing with the receiving core of the team.
Their leading receiver Marquez Callaway only has 254 yards, which ranks 75th in the league. However, it has been rumored that the New Orleans Saints have been in trade talks to address this issue per Albert Breer and Dov Kleiman.
DeVante Parker of the Miami Dolphins is a name to keep an eye on.
Why trading for DeVante Parker makes sense for New Orleans Saints
The Miami Dolphins have been one of the biggest failures of the 2021 season. Many fans saw the team as a playoff team; however, the team has struggled with a 1-6 record. Parker, who has only played in four of those games, has been sidelined with injuries. However, Parker should be back on the field in the coming weeks.
Parker’s 2019 was undoubtedly his best season. He posted 72 receptions, 1202, and nine touchdowns. The 2020 season was a bit of a down year for Parker but had he played in all 16 games he might’ve cracked 1,000 receiving yards. He still had a solid season with 63 receptions, 798 yards, and four touchdowns. Parker excels at getting open, which is something the Saints desperately need.
With Thomas out, we have seen how much this team relies on him for passing production. Now that he has been out multiple weeks, this offense has struggled tremendously to get going.
Acquiring Parker would allow this team to get a great compliment to Thomas, and get the much-needed depth for the team if Thomas were to get injured again.
Parker will most likely not be on the Dolphins at the end of this year’s trade deadline. The New Orleans Saints should absolutely be the team that he goes to.
