A significant piece could become available and apparently, that piece is interested in being part of the Saints' puzzle.
Russell Wilson's camp started to let it be known the quarterback might want out of Seattle a few weeks ago, and The Athletic added more credence to that possibility with a report detailing both sides' frustrations. Within that story, New Orleans is listed as one of the teams Wilson would like to join.
This matters because his contract has a no-trade clause, which gives him a little bit of control if a deal actually gets made.
Now, there's a long way to go from reports to a deal, and it still would be surprising to see Seattle make a move. But the Saints should absolutely be interested if Wilson is available.
How would a deal work? How would the Saints create cap space? What would it mean for the team?
Here are the answers to all of those questions.
