Could we trade Pierre to the Lions?

The Saints are pretty deep at running back now with the emergence of Cadet. Could they trade Pierre or Ivory?

The Lions have been said to be on the phone trying to trade for a back, we have 5? Just saying?

I'll take a 1st for PT, or a 5th for Ivory.

Nothing less.

I think trading Pierre would be a huge mistake unless, as Danno stated, they get nothing less than a 1st rounder for him. Ivory I could live without, but there is no way I would want the Saints to unload PT. He brings way too much to our offense.

PT is vital to our offense being lethal, he brings so much to the table and couldn't be replaced at all

I agree PT would have to be more than a late pick, he has been crucial in this offense. I wouldn't be surprised if Ivory is on the bubble. Better trade them then cut them? Just saying

Re: Could we trade Pierre to the Lions?

There's no way the Saints should trade PT because he is probably the all-around best RB they have and to top that he has a very cap friendly contract.

But to answer your initial question: certainly they could trade him to several teams, I imagine.

I don't think Ivory is trade worthy. Doubt the Lions would chance it with his injury history...

This, exactly.

There's no way anyone could know how a pick is going to transition to the NFL, even a first rounder. Pierre fits the Saints offense perfectly and is a proven commodity.
