It's helpful information, but I wouldn't use PFF as the barometer on a player's resume...

He's back and it's good and we get a couple more years of watching him woof down a Crispy Thin Catfish Poboy on the Big Screen at New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Company...

Average of $4.1ml on a more than solid RT.

Another hole filled pre draft.
I think we see movement on Graham now. The deals have been done so they can sort the cap figure for year one.

Re: Saints re-sign Zach Strief

Seems like it'll be fairly affordable 3-year contract when all is said and done.

I don't mind Strief remaining with the team if they can improve the center position from the DLP level.

Re: Saints re-sign Zach Strief

Im guessing a restructure or two in contracts will be happening when Graham inks the tag or new deal

Re: Saints re-sign Zach Strief

I'm happy. Maybe they're frontloading his money.
He wasn't really the problem I saw with our o-line last year, so this is good.

What we hear about door knocks, or free agency isn't a litmus test either. Good players get left out and over the hill big names get signed every year.
