Saints News, 10/30/15: ESPN Proposes Drew Brees Trade to the New York Jets Before Tuesday Deadline

Some dufus at has an article out that seems to be simply click bait and nothing else. Here's an excerpt so you won't have to waste your valuable time searching for some kind of logic behind this insanity: "The Saints have defied gravity for about as long as any team can in today's NFL that is not based in New England...But the modern-day reality is three losing seasons in the past four, including a 3-4 mark this season, already hopelessly far behind the 6-0 Carolina Panthers and 6-1 Atlanta Falcons in the smoking NFC South. The Saints have systematically dismantled their core, underlined by the dealing of tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seattle Seahawks and the release of linebacker Junior Galette, in an attempt to keep face of the franchise and future Hall of Famer in the pocket. There are 11 rookies on the roster already, so they are already well into a drastic makeover....Now it's time to throw caution to the wind and let the Brees go -- while he's still worth something. We could have sent him to the Buffalo Bills or Washington Redskins, but this was the best fit."
