If Armstead leaves we still pay him $16,000,000.

not only is he young but this was basically his rookie year after breaking his leg. Our defense is fine. They just need to stay healthy.

Keep them both. I'm sure Drew's new contract and a restructure of Terron's will allow us to do allow more than just keep those 2.

Re: Armistead and Rankins

I would move Armstead if the price was right. He just can't be counted on to play but when he does he's an absolute monster. Peat is OK as a LT but I think his natural position is playing left guard.

If we move Armstead I hope we invest the pick back into the O-line.

Too many people are fixated upon numbers. Numbers do not tell the whole story. Look at Scott Shanle. He was voted by teammates the Saints defensive MVP in 2008 with only 87 total tackles, two sacks and five passes defended. His job was to channel to the inside and he excelled at that.

It's how well you do your job that is important. Rankins job for most of the season was to occupy two blockers and he did that quite well.

Okay and if that is true than someone should have broke out. Point to the player along the front that recorded extra sacks based off of his production. That's why I am looking at numbers because no one else has them either
