Contract negotiations between Alvin Kamara and the New Orleans Saints seem to be heading south fast, together with Josina Anderson reporting that the club is available to trading the three-time Pro Bowl choice. Whether the rumor is true or not, these five groups should be on the telephone.
The Saints might only be posturing for the sake of contract discussions, but really trading Kamara will be unwise given their dependence on him . Even though Drew Brees’ offseason emphasize tapes indicate he has improved his arm power, we will consider it when we see it. For the time being, the Saints will stay a group that uses Kamara in more than just the run game, which explains why he needs a contract much like what Christian McCaffrey obtained ($16 million each season) instead of the bargain Joe Mixon simply signed ($12 million annually ). That gap isn’t little, and the Saints do not wish to get hamstrung financially if Brees does decide to hang up his cleats, or so the rebuild will probably be long and hard even when they’ve Kamara in tow.
Thus, if the Saints do there’s no better choice than to get exactly what they could now for Kamara, which groups will be prepared to cover up?
Can there be an NFL roster having a more glaring need at running back?
David Montgomery is expected to miss numerous weeks with a groin injury — and let us be fair, the jury remains out about the 2019 third-round draft select — while Tarik Cohen averaged 3.3 yards per carry last year.
Not merely could Kamara immediately take over as Chicago’s RB1, but his capacity to lineup as a slot receiver would also add yet another wrinkle to Matt Nagy’s crime.
The Bears are a small light on the two cap room to cover Kamara right now in addition to resources, using already dealt their fourth- and – seventh-round selections next year. Front office can undoubtedly discover the money, however, although the Saints likely would not balk at Cohen as a part in the yield.
