Alvin Kamara is one of the most well-known NFL players whose name has recently come up in trade speculations. According to different reports, the New Orleans Saints "turned down" the Buffalo Bills' chase of the five-time Pro Bowl choice. They are also considering transferring Kamara to the draft-pick-heavy Philadelphia Eagles.

The Saints want "at least a comparable package" to what the Panthers received for Christian McCaffrey to trade Alvin Kamara, per @Rapsheet, @TomPelissero and @MikeGarafolo

There is no questioning Kamara's exceptional talent. The moment may be right for the Saints to make a profit on one of its most-prized assets, yet the running back is the most expendable role in the league.

Here are a few different groups that could release him off the Saints' roster.

#1 - Philadelphia Eagles

On media platforms, there are rumors that the Eagles are looking to make a deal for Alvin Kamara.

BREAKING: After making an attempt to trade for star RB Christian McCaffrey the #Eagles have had talks for 5x Pro Bowl RB Alvin Kamara, per league source. And still actively remain involved in his market.

How or why this rumor started is unknown. In the expectation that he could switch from a struggling team to a competitor, Kamara's representation may have been seeking a means to publicize the player's availability.

#2 - Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills are searching for a running back as the trade deadline approaches. According to Fox Sports, the Bills called the New Orleans Saints to enquire about Alvin Kamara in an effort to acquire one of the NFL's top running backs. They apparently received a refusal, though.

The Bills made a trade call for Alvin Kamara but were "rebuffed" by the Saints, per @JayGlazer

The entire NFL would be terrified if the five-time Pro Bowler joined an attack like Buffalo's. In each of his five NFL campaigns, Kamara has accumulated, at least, 1,300 yards from scrimmage, making him one of the top dual-threat running backs in the league. He is now recording an average career-high 70.2 rushing yards per contest this season. So it's not surprising that the Saints have no desire to release him.

#3- Dallas Cowboys

Several were concerned about the Dallas Cowboys' lack of recruitment after an offseason in which it appeared every group in the NFC East reinforced, as the Eagles made advances, acquiring wide receiver AJ Brown in a blockbuster deal with the Tennessee Titans and also advancing in the NFL Draft to secure Jordan Davis this offseason.

The Philadelphia Eagles have improved, and the Cowboys are now 6-2 and second in the NFC East, trailing the 7-0 Eagles. However, this implies that they have some catching up to do.

#4 - Kansas City Chiefs

Before the deadline on Tuesday, the Chiefs pulled off a significant deal in which they acquired Kadarius Toney from the New York Giants in exchange for two picks in the upcoming NFL Draft. As he works to elevate Kansas City into the Super Bowl discussion, general manager Brett Veach's future involvement is in doubt.

Despite the fact that Alvin Kamara's deal appears to be bad on the outside, it isn't. If they pick him up, the acquiring team would only be liable for $550,000 this season. In exchange, the Chiefs significantly improved over players like Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Isiah Pacheco. It all boils down to market value and how much compensation Alvin Kamara would require.
