- Russini adds that Stills’ availability is being kept very quiet, but New Orleans is shopping him around the league.
The Saints have been by far the most active team in the trade market since free agency got underway on Tuesday. New Orleans has already dealt TE Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks and G Ben Grubbs to the Chiefs, but they’re reportedly willing to consider moving a number of players.
Still, 22, 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.
In fact, trading Still would only free up $536,387 in available cap space while creating $97,226 in dead money, according to OverTheCap.com.
In 2014, Still caught 63 passes for 931 yards receiving and three touchdowns over the course of 15 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 23 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.
