The New Orleans Saints came into the 2022 season looking to compete for a spot in the postseason and perhaps even an NFC South crown. However, that hasn’t happened through seven weeks of play.
Sitting at 2-5 heading into their week 8 matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders, it’s looking like another lost season in New Orleans. But rather than just remain content and give it another go next year with this same group of players, word around the league is that the Saints could undergo a rebuild.
And one of the first pieces to get shipped out of town could be star running back Alvin Kamara.
Alvin Kamara Trade Rumors Heating Up
Rumors around the league suggest that several teams have called the Saints about Kamara’s availability, and the Philadelphia Eagles are said to be among them.
Philly has been busy so far ahead of the trade deadline. They acquired Bears pass-rusher Robert Quinn earlier in the week. And the Eagles were believed to be involved in the Christian McCaffrey sweepstakes, with reports suggesting that they offered the Panthers a third-rounder for the star running back’s services.
Would they be willing to give up a similar pick in an Alvin Kamara trade?
Who Else Could Be Trying To Trade For Alvin Kamara?
Two other teams that also come to mind are the Baltimore Ravens and the Kansas City Chiefs — although it’s not likely that the Chiefs make another splash after acquiring Kadarius Toney earlier in the day, especially with Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Isiah Pacheco still in their backfield.
What Alvin Kamara Would Bring To His New Team
Anyone who trades for the five-time Pro Bowler would be getting a running back who can contribute just as much to the passing game as he does to the run game. Five-and-a-half seasons into his NFL career, Kamara has 4,589 rushing yards and 47 rushing touchdowns compared to 3,454 receiving yards and 20 touchdown receptions. He also started out his career with four straight seasons of 80-plus receptions.
Needless to say, he’d be quite the asset to any team that acquires him in today’s pass-happy NFL.
