3. Alvin Kamara
It wasn’t long ago where the title hopes and dreams of New Orleans were closely pinned to the shoulder pads of Alvin Kamara. The do it all back has been fantastic, superb, phenomenal, and every other superlative word you can think of.
In each of his five seasons, he was named to the Pro Bowl roster and was tabbed as one of the best runners and ball catchers out of the backfield. This past year was much of the same, Kamara racked up the rushing and receiving yards and was selected to yet another Pro Bowl. But, for the first time in his career, Kamara’s Saints missed out on the playoffs. Get ready Saints fans, this is going to be a reoccurring theme for the next few years.
The Saints need a major overhaul. Their current quarterback situation is a major question mark, their offensive weapons aren’t what they used to be, and Dennis Allen, their newly signed head coach, has produced a record of 8-28 during his time as the lead man.
Trading Kamara might sting but at the age 26 and with plenty of years left on his deal, Kamara is quite possibly their most valuable trade commodity. Also, moving him would push the team further away from his current legal woes. For a team looking to get over that championship hump, Kamara could be that missing piece. And, as a result, they might be willing to throw a boatload of picks in the Saints direction.
Trading Kamara is the best and possibly only way to kick start their rebuild.
