The New Orleans Saints might be having one of the most uninspiring free agencies of anyone in 2015 so far.
The Saints have signed a grand total of zero free agents, lost Curtis Lofton to the Oakland Raiders and traded away star tight end Jimmy Graham for an injury prone center in Max Unger and a 1st round pick that the Seattle Seahawks didn't even value.
The bad news keeps on coming for Saints fans however, as it emerged today that the Saints are apparently looking to trade star wide receiver Kenny Stills, further depleting their offense. When it rains, it pours for New Orleans supporters.
According to a report from Dianne Marie Russini of NBC 4 in Washington D.C, the Saints seem to be trying to find out what they can get for the extremely talented wideout.
As you might imagine, Saints fans are not too happy about the news of their ever-depleting offense...
There are a lot of teams that should be interested in a playmaker like Stills. The Oakland Raiders desperately need to bring in some pieces for Derek Carr to throw to and show what he can really do, while the Houston Texans have a gaping Andre Johnson-sized hole to fill in their offense in 2015.
The 22-year old Stills has another two years remaining on his four-year, $2.354 million rookie contract that includes very reasonable base salaries of $585,000 and $675,000 over the next two years, so it’s not as though they would pick up a lot of cap room by moving him.
And Stills, while boasting a lot of potential, isn't at a stage yet where he could command an early pick in the draft either this year or next. In his two years in the league to date, he has yet to record over 1,000 yards in a campaign and only has eight total touchdowns to his name.
One thing does seem for certain around here however. The New Orleans Saints are trying to completely rebuild their team, even if their fans aren't too pleased with some of the decisions that they are making.
