NFL Notes: Trade Ideas, Drew Brees, Falcons, & Titans

Trade Ideas

ESPN’s Greg Garber has been offering some trades he’d like to see made ahead of this year’s trade deadline. Here’s a collection of his proposed trades thus far:

Drew Brees

While many have suggested that the Saints should consider moving on from QB Drew Brees for cap purposes, Mike Triplett of ESPN believes New Orleans would be foolish to let him go until they have a solid replacement in place.

As of now, Triplett doesn’t believe they have a quality option in place that would allow them to move on from the best player in team history.

Triplett points out that while Brees will carry a $30 million cap figure in 2016, it’s more likely to impact veteran players like WR Marques Colston, G Jahri Evans, and OT Zach Strief.

According to Triplett, the Saints could consider signing Brees to an extension next year, as Brees will be in the final year of his deal, and it would create some cap space while keeping him under team control through at least 2017.
