In a couple of articles I read last year. After watching Strief hobble around after that I started noticing we don't run to the right often. Not only that his lateral movement is unimpressive and he was getting beat all last season.jmho

history wise you need to be aware of the knees. he does have a history of being banged up off and on which is expected over the years but the age factor is looming larger.

I would like to see the saints draft early with the idea that by mid season we have a solid replacement ready to go. not saying he starts but is ready. then have streif finish out his time as a saint as the back up to both OT. that's if we can sign him.

Harris is till a project that maybe able to step into the role of back up when streif retires. i just have not seen starter ability in him YET

Every OL is going to have knee issues at some point. Especially the taller ones. Jagcatdad is absolutely correct in pointing out Strief's high level of play. He is one of the best right tackles in football. It is lunacy to think we should not be re-signing him this offseason.

I didn't think it was a question of whether the Saints would WANT Strief back. I think the question will be can they afford him. He's likely to get some good offers from other teams.
