Yeah missing out on tbe run at pass rusher late in the first looks to have paid up in the long run

I think things are getting there but as injuries have shown we must address the bench.

The elephant in the room is LOT. How long do you pay a quality LOT top money when you know he will miss multiple games due to injuries. Some of which are reacquiring?

I think the front needs to address this issue before the option year on Armstead is comes due.

Terron Armstead
Potential Out: 2019, 3 yr, $31,321,000; $7,400,000 dead cap
Cap savings 7.6 M

Then there is Max Ungerb at the age of 31
Time to groom a starter for the day he stops playing?

Larry Warford is another to watch closely

There is not much on the bench to groom into a starter, as the saints seem to scramble with each and every injury to plug the holes.

The bench needs to be address with a few you talent OL to groom for the future

Other than that I am happy the saints are finally addressing the issue

If I'm the personnel man for the Saints, with this draft; I'm hoping Armstead finishes strong, healthy and then I move him like I should've done this past offseason...

Peat was drafted to play LT and he could slide there where guards are easier to find...

If you don't like Peat, Ramczyk was doing a terrific job as a rookie...

Right Tackles are easier to find; we're gonna need some cap space and I'd start with Armstead...
