New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara seemingly responded to the trade speculation involving him.
Of course, a Kamara trade is merely conjecture at this point. There aren’t any strong indicators that the 2-5 Saints are actually looking to trade their star running back at this time—although teams have reportedly been inquiring about his availability.
Kamara decided to have some fun with all the rumors by posting the following tweet, which many are naturally taking as a response to the trade speculation.

This Tweet seemed to excite Eagles fans on Twitter:
New Orleans has been among the biggest disappointments in football this season. They re-signed Jameis Winston and added Pro Bowlers in wideout Jarvis Landry and safety Tyrann Mathieu in free agency.
The Saints also made a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to land a second first-round pick in this year’s draft. They traded up for Ohio State wideout Chris Olave and Northern Iowa offensive tackle Trevor Penning, who has yet to play this season as he continues to recover from foot surgery.
The Saints have been ravaged by injuries, however. Winston, Landry, Kamara, Penning Michael Thomas and Marshon Lattimore are among the key players who have missed multiple games this season due to injury.
In 2020, the Saints gave Kamara a massive five-year contract extension worth $75 million. The 2017 Offensive Rookie of the Year is under contract through the 2025 season.
In five games this season, the five-time Pro Bowler has 351 rushing yards and 24 receptions for 191 yards. Given his career track record (five seasons with over 1,000 yards of offense), Kamara would surely net New Orleans a nice haul in a potential trade.
After all, the Carolina Panthers acquired four draft picks (including second and third-rounders) from the San Francisco 49ers in the Christian McCaffrey trade.
But if the Saints get back on track and defeat the Las Vegas Raiders this Sunday, it could prompt GM Mickey Loomis and company to keep their roster together and make a second half push for the NFC South division crow.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
