Strief a Saint or taking his ball and going home

Zach Strief will play for the New Orleans Saints or no one - New Orleans Saints Blog- ESPN

Sounds to me like he is willing to take a good size pay cut to stay a Saint. Not to often a player shows this type of loyality. Could be a valuable cheap backup.

Extremely rare. Keep him around. Might as well see if he can beat out the kids. If not, hey, we can always use a guy like him as a backup.

Good guy. Wish there were more like him in the NFL.

Strief is a solid tackle but seems like an even greater guy!

Re: Strief a Saint or taking his ball and going home

I'm fine with him being a back up RT, but please God, don't let him be a starter anymore. I never understood the infatuation with Strief. He's the most overrated player to ever touch our offensive line. We should have moved Bushrod to RT and let Strief walk years ago. Then maybe we wouldn't have wasted a picked on Peat and took an interior lineman or pass rusher instead.

Yeah, we should have wasted it on Chris Conley!

Has been rated as one of the best RT in the NFL in 2013 and 2014. His character in the locker room has never been questioned. Zach your a pro in every way. Wish we head a 53 man roster on game day with guys like you. If so we wouldn't be talking about missing the playoffs, but how deep we get in the playoffs.

he was really good prior to this season, but this season he has been a disaster, Peat has to take over and we should keep him as abackup

C'mon Rez, I'm as critical as the next man when it comes to aging players but overrated? Zach is a long time starter however father time has caught up with him. He has been the starter since Stinchcomb retired, no? I wish we had the 2011 Strief but unfortunately he is past his prime.

I also think Zach was good for many years.
