I for one hope the Saints can bring "the band" back together with a few important upgrades for one more run but sometimes I get the feeling that may not be possible and someone will be let go/traded because there's not enough salary cap room to keep everyone.

The chances of either Hill or Kamara going elsewhere this year are slim. As for Drew I give it a less than 20% chance he retires.

considering our cap situation I can see AK being traded

though if Th is the new no 2 we loose possibly our 2nd best WR making AK loss more significant

Kamara's contract is still low enough that they don't need to trade him to save space. If he insists on a new deal the team can't afford then he can just sit for a year and not got paid.

im thinking more about AK not a FA so we have his rights ,

Latt and Ram we can loose IMO and MW and AA don’t have the same value

I’d say both of those scenarios would be as equally disappointing for me. Brees, because he’s still probably better at this point than anyone else we might have, and, of course for sentimental reasons. Taysom and Kamara, because they’re both just good players who I’d hate to be without.

The good news is I don’t think we’ll be without a single one in 2020, but hey, you never know.

Latt and Ram were both first round picks and as such are subject to the 5th year option clause making them under contract though 2021. Their leverage for a new deal now is less than Kamara's

#9 retiring.......it's not even close.

Not buying it until HE announces it and that likely won't happen until Brady retires.

Taysom not being here. He is single handedly responsible for what.... 40-55% of anything positive that happened in our last game?

Many are selling Kamara way too short. He is a special back. His injuries this year hurt his explosiveness and teams have definitely made a point of emphasis on how to contain him. If he demands absolute top dollar, then maybe that changes. The next couple of years, I think, might be a little difficult in trying to transition to a new era in Saints football. Brees is coming to the end of line - either this year or next. With the next generation of Saints talent hitting their contract years in the next year or two, some difficult decisions will need to be made. The Saint brass has to decide who are the core players going forward and who can be replaced. There are going to be some good players that will have to leave in free agency due to cap restraints.

I think it all hinges on whether Brees comes back this year or not. And, at the price the Saints want him back. They have to think in terms of the dead cap money that they'll have to eat the year following his retirement.
