The New Orleans Saints haven’t made the playoffs since Drew Brees retried— that happened three seasons ago. Since then, the Saints have gone 9-8, 7-10, and 9-10. Now, as New Orleans prepares for the 2024 NFL season, they must break this exhausting cycle of mediocrity or some major changes could be coming to New Orleans.

Fortunately, the Saints have all offseason to prevent that from happening. The team will be able to utilize the draft, free agency, and the trade market to develop into a contender. Free agency and the draft are two aspects of the offseason that are fairly mapped out, trades however, can often be unexpected.

The biggest trade news surrounding New Orleans this offseason is the possibility of a Marshon Lattimore trade. Whether that happens or not remains to be seen. But, there are also some trades the Saints could make this offseason to acquire some talented to players.

Let’s take a look at three players New Orleans could trade for to propel itself to the playoffs.

3. Saints can trade for Raiders tackle Kolton Miller

New Orleans has already brought a few people from Las Vegas to the Saints, and they can bring another this offseason. The left tackle position needs to be addressed, and the expectations is that New Orleans will do that in the draft. Why wait when you can get a proven, talented player.

Kolton Miller, just 28 years old, is coming off his sixth season in the NFL— all with the Raiders. Since entering the league, he has been a reliable left tackle for Vegas. A trade would allow him to protect Derek Carr once again and iron out New Orleans’ issues on the left side of the line.

With two seasons remaining on his contract, the Raiders don’t really have to trade him, but considering that they’re starting fresh as a franchise, maybe they could be tempted with some picks that could kickstart their rebuild, and possibly help them find their quarterback.
