The Saints are reportedly exploring the possibility of trading three big names on offense.
Those names are Pierre Thomas, Lance Moore and Darren Sproles, according to ESPN.
The cash-strapped Saints could trim several million dollars off the salary cap with a trade of one or three of the aforementioned players.
The possibility of a trade isn't surprising, considering the desire to re-sign Tight End Jimmy Graham and Tackle Zach Strief. The Saints have $1.5 million of cap space ahead of opening day of free agency on March 11th. Teams can begin negotiating with players on Saturday March 8th.
One former Saints player who asked to remain anonymous doesn't agree with me about the possibility of moving Moore, Thomas, and possibly Sproles.
"What the f*** are they doing? Tearing it down? They better be careful how fast they do it. They're being too aggressive in one off-season," he said.
He added "They seem to forget the formula to their success. They think they don't need any vets because some young players flashed and played well last season."
