Re: Saints Sign Center Chris Watt

Like I said, Saints are more concerned about that interior offensive line and keep Brees' windshield clean while driving down the field...

C/G Chris Watt, Age: 26yo; Height: 6' 3"; Weight: 320 lbs; College: Notre Dame; Drafted: 3rd Round, 25th Pick (No. 89) by the Chargers where he played 17 games, starting 8 before being put on the PUP list in 2016 and washing out after failing his physical.

They are also going to need a full complement of centers for drills when training camp starts. They need that positional camp body until Unger is cleared to return.

Re: Saints Sign Center Chris Watt

Well, these are the interior offensive linemen:

LG (2) 75 - Andrus Peat, 77 - John Fullington, 78 - Landon Turner

C (2) 61 - Josh LeRibeus, 66 - Jack Allen, 63 - Cameron Tom (UDFA), 60 - Max Unger

RG (2) 67 - Larry Warford, 65 - Senio Kelemete, 00 - Chris Watt

Unger's replacement is somewhere between Kelemete, LeRibeus, Allen, Watt, and Tom...

Problem with Tom is that he's only 290 lbs.; Allen is also small and only 6' 1"; saw interview with LeRibeus, not a guy that exudes confidence; Watt is checks the boxes, including being injured; so the question is - Is Kelemete up to the task or not?!?

Re: Saints Sign Center Chris Watt

We might have reached the throw a bunch of stuff against the wall and see what sticks phase.
Hindsight is 20-20, but holding onto Hills or Evans would have have been a nice insurance plan.

surprised we haven't worked out Pasztor or Clady. Oher is supposedly being cut, but now that we have a hole Carolina might keep him a few more weeks

What hole? We drafted arguably the best left tackle in the first round of the draft.

The hole created when our starting LT got injured. Didn't you hear about it? Saints' Terron Armstead out 4-6 months after surgery - NFL.com

Right now our backups are Harris and Khalif Barnes (5th time around, and age 35)

Re: Saints Sign Center Chris Watt

I have seen Peyton have his entire OL replaced late in the season and they still got it done to include the playoffs. Concerning situation but not as big losing secondary or DL players IMO. If that happens we are officially screwed. These guys also have time to gel and some will return. Not a big deal right now.

Due diligence.

Chris has actual NFL starter experience & Tom doesn't. Good depth is the name of the game & you can never have enough linemen. The weak will weed itself out at training camp.
