NFL Rumors: Saints open to trading Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas, Lance Moore


The New Orleans Saints appear dead set on making some moves this offseason to afford tight end Jimmy Graham and it may include trading one of their better offensive weapons.

According to ESPN’s Adm Schefter, the Saints are shopping both Pierre Thomas and Lance Moore. In addition, they’d be open to trading swing running back Darren Sproles as well.

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.

Schefter didn’t go on to suggest what New Orleans would be wanting in return, though, it does appears that Sproles is the least likely of the three to be moved as he’s not being actively shopped like the other two.

It’s doubtful the Saints would get much value out of Thomas or Moore (despite their talents), so it may be more for the Saints to clear sap space if such a move was to be made.
