New Orleans Saints are interested in trading several of their stars as they look to reshape their organisation for the 2014 NFL season.

It's seems there could be an offensive overhaul about to take place at the Saints, with parts of their 2010 Super Bowl winning team set to be dismantled.

The running-back division of the Saints is the area that looks to be at most threat of overhaul, with Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles both reportedly available for other teams to shop around. 

Wide-receiver Lance Moore is also understood to be gaining interest from other NFL teams. 

ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter tweeted today.

"Saints shopping RB Pierre Thomas and WR Lance Moore to other teams, per sources, and even could be open to trading RB Darren Sproles also."

The Saints have been shopping around players in a bid to trim their cap responsibilities.
Other sources suggest that Sproles could also be traded.

With the Saints close to the salary cap threshold, getting rid of the veteran players who take up significant cap space is a necessary requirement.

The emergence of young running backs Mark Ingram and Khiry Robinson make this decision to try and part ways easier, and young receiver Kenny Stills could also replace Moore.
