Armstead

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Great player but canít stay on the field. He has value and we have not had much of a drop off without him. Kelemete has been solid shifting around and I think could develop into a legit starter at LT. ...

Armstead

Great player but canít stay on the field. He has value and we have not had much of a drop off without him. Kelemete has been solid shifting around and I think could develop into a legit starter at LT.
Do we move Armstead?

Re: Armstead

Saints are going to be very lucky to retain Kelemete, he has done enough to hit the big money in free agency. As for Armstead, very interesting issue. He is a top 5 NFL LT when healthy, depends on how fixable his health issues are moving forward.

Re: Armstead

Armsted didn't even suppose to play this year with that hamstring injury, I give him all the props going out there and giving his 100. After research I will never call him Mr. Glass cause few men would be out there with the conditions he had to bare

I'm sure there's a lot these guys play through that most of us would find amazing. Armstead is a warrior. He battles. I never question his heart.

I might shop him for a King's ransom because we have Peat, but it would take a King's ransom to be sure.

Re: Armstead

It is a fair question based on his contract numbers.

All kind of a mute issue till next year when we have out built into his contract.

See who falls to us at 27?

Trade back?

OT Kolton Miller, UCLA
OT Chukwuma Okorafor, Western Michigan
OT Desmond Harrison, West Georgia
OT Martinas Rankin, Mississippi State
OT Jamarco Jones, Ohio State

I am more a swing OT to develop

Re: Armstead

Because of his injury history we would not get the value needed to move him. I’m for keeping him...with that injury he was still one of the best LT in the league. We are too close to go and start making drastic changes.

Re: Armstead

Keep him another year and draft another first round O-line. There is less risk of a bust when you draft O-line in the first round. My only concern is that we don't have a second round pick this year and Payton might want a splash player before we get to the third round.
