Roman Harper, Zach Strief among New Orleans Saints players who might be elsewhere next season
 
Obviously this organization has been a big part of my life. I feel like I've been a part of the success here, and I don't want to leave that. And yet it's probably my last opportunity to sign a contract in this league. They understand that. I understand that. You hope that everybody at some point comes to an agreement to where you can stay. That's how I feel. I think that's how they feel."

Sounds like Strief thinks he is going to move on. And despite what some here might say, he's generally regarded as one of the league's better right tackles and has the right to be paid as such. I hope we can find a way to keep him.

I respect Zach, but RT's are easier to find. We already have two in-house candidates for replacement in Marcel Jones and Bryce Harper, and we may draft a swing tackle in this deraft.

Who dat you are thinking of Bryce Harris who Saints picked up off falcons practice squad in 2012.He had a great camp with Falcanots.when he got to saints he was on active roster but got hurt in his first start.I think the Start was for a hurt zach strief in 2012.he was then put on Ir for the rest of 2012.He should have been our 234th pick in 2012 not Marcel Jones.The knock on Marcel coming out in 2012 was lack of upper body strength.I would think two years in the weight room has taken care of this.the other in house option for right tackle is Ty Neshke 6-8/333 who was a former arena player who had a good camp with rams in 2012 until he put his big foot in his you know what.Who however has the foot speed to back up at left tackle if charles Brown now a UFA is not resigned to backup Armstead.Bryce comes close in my opinion. :lightsabres::angel:

If Strief took a 5 year deal worth 30-35 million, I'd love to have him back.

Blows my mind sometimes. Our top sportsmen in Australia wouldn't get more than 1.5 million, if that, over 5 years ~ at best.

Strief is hobbled and doesn't run block very well.

I've been waiting for the day we finally dropped Strief. :)

And I thought that I was the only one on here that didn't care for his service
