The New Orleans Saints have had trade conversations regarding defensive tackle Malcom Brown, according to NFL Network.
The 27 year-old defensive tackle signed a 3-year, $15 million contract with New Orleans in 2019. Brown is now in the third year of the contract. A trade or release would save New Orleans $5 million in cap as the team finds themselves $69 million over the cap.
Brown was drafted with the 32nd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots.
The Saints made more moves on Wednesday to address their cap situation.
The Saints released offensive lineman Nick Easton earlier in February, which saved New Orleans nearly $6 million in cap space.
