Andrus Peat looks like a new man this offseason.

Peat, who will always be monstrous at 6-foot-7 and more than 300 pounds, is visibly leaner than he was as a rookie, carrying a burly NBA power forward’s torso atop his massive lower body.

By design, he hasn’t lost much weight, only a few pounds off of the roughly 320-pound frame he carried last season. Peat’s overall weight wasn’t the problem when the Saints opened training camp last August; the way that weight was distributed is what set him back. With that in mind, Peat spent the months after his rookie year working hard to turn fat into muscle.



“I really just focused on changing my body composition and kind of leaning up a little bit,” Peat said. “I’m feeling better, that’s the biggest thing. More energy in practice, I’m doing better in conditioning and those types of things. I’m still working at it.”

Re: Andrus Peat looking like a new man for Saints

This is looking like one of the many underestimations by those predicting doom and gloom on the Saints upcoming season. How can a team that went 7-9 while losing a number of games it should have won be forecast as a 5-11 team when virtually every portion of the team's makeup has seen improvement in talent?

He looks like he's gained some size upper body wise.

Re: Andrus Peat looking like a new man for Saints

It's nothing against Strief, who has been a terrific boon for a seventh round pick, strong leader, enforcer in the locker room, and has played at an elite level for several years through great attitude and hard work...

But as high as Peat was selected in the first round, Andrus needs to step up and at least win the right tackle job, if not push to be the the top tackle on the team to warrant his selection...
