Re: Saints position outlook: Offensive line should remain a strength

Per Pro Football Reference, since signing his big contract in 2015-16 offseason, Armstead has only played in 17 games, available for one season of games...

Terron Armstead

Year GP GS
2013 6 2
2014 14 14
2015 13 13
2016 7 7
2017 10 10

Note: These number do not reflect games he did not finish...

Armstead cap number is currently No. 2 on the roster...

We can't afford to move Armstead this season but we will likely lose Kelemete so we need to draft another O-line early.

We need quality depth + Armstead is injury prone. No guarantees Senio stays in New Orleans.

If the best player available @ 27 is a O lineman, take him.

I say pay Kelemente and keep Armstead another year or restructure his contract so it won’t hurt as much to part ways with him after next year.
I also don’t see why we can’t trade him. If he’s traded are we still on the hook for his cap numbers?
I don’t care if we don’t get value for him.

Need to pay Kelemente and either restructure armistead or trade him even if we have to eat some of his contract to do so. Hell of a player just to often injured

Billy Price, C/G, Ohio State
Height: 6-4. Weight: 315


How can we pass on this guy if hes still there @ 27? He can play all three interior positions.

Also, Max Unger will be 32 in April and only has two years left on his contract.

You don't pass on a guy like this at 27. We land him & we will have one of if not the best O-Line in the league for many years. This would only help an already good running game & bring along whatever QB succeeds Brees.

Plus it'll continue populating our Ohio State South Branch.

Ragnow looks better, and this is a pretty deep draft; should Taven Bryan fall, I'd rather keep improving that defensive front seven right now...

Quenton Nelson and Frank Ragnow are the only offensive linemen I want in the first round, you can stand pat and pull some great O-linemen in later rounds
