New Orleans Saints wide receiver Jarvis Landry appears to be trying to bring one of his former teammates to The Big Easy.

Cleveland Browns running back Kareem Hunt recently requested a trade. Hunt wants a new contract, but he’s a 27-year-old second-string running back, which makes an extension unlikely.

The Browns reportedly denied Hunt’s trade request, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the former Pro-Bowl running back won’t be traded. We’ve seen plenty of these situations over the years and they all seemingly play out a different way.

Landry, who played with Hunt in Cleveland for three seasons, left a comment on Instagram this week that seems to indicate he’d like to bring Hunt to New Orleans.

I don’t know how interested the Saints would be in trading for Hunt, but adding him to the roster would make some sense.

Alvin Kamara is obviously at the top of the New Orleans depth chart. But he could be facing a suspension at some point this season for his role in an assault that took place in Las Vegas during Pro-Bowl weekend.

The depth behind Kamara isn’t necessarily inspiring. Mark Ingram will turn 33 in December. And while he still has some gas left in the tank, he’s clearly on the downside of his career. The other option is Malcolm Brown, a journeyman running back who has never rushed for more than 500 yards in a season.

Hunt would provide the Saints with some much-needed depth and he could step into a lead running back role if Kamara is forced to miss time.

There would certainly be some benefit for New Orleans if they traded for Hunt, but it remains to be seen if the team is seriously interested in making a move for the disgruntled running back.
