- Schefter adds that the Saints “could” be open to trading RB Darren Sproles as well.
Lamont Smith, the agent for Thomas, told The New Orleans Times-Picayune a few weeks ago that the Saints has reached out to his client regarding his future with the team, but didn’t say if they were considering releasing or trading him.
Last year, Thomas totaled 549 yard rushing and another 513 yards receiving and five total touchdowns over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Thomas rated as the No. 13 running back in the league last season.
Moore’s name has come up as a potential cap casualty given that he has a $5.1 million salary cap for the 2014 season, and the fact that he only played half of the Saints offensive snaps just four times over the course of 18 games.
Sproles, 30, has one year remaining on his four-year, $14 million contract and would make a base salary of $3.4 million for the upcoming season.
It’s a little surprising to hear that he could be available in a trade, but New Orleans has very little cap space to work with, so I’ms sure they are open to whatever options are available to them.
