As we said earlier, everyone else is playing for second string.

So if Erik is our center, does that mean Nick Easton transitions over to guard and bye bye Andrus Peat in 2020?

I think Easton is there to man the important swing position of G/C. We need a quality backup badly. Peat can swing from LG to LT, as well. We need to keep every versatile offensive lineman we can lay our hands on.

Unless Peat gets too expensive I don't see him going anywhere. He has been really really good for us so far.

He's due 9.625M for 2019.

No way the Saints pay that.

An extension/restructure will deal with that. But, what does it matter for 2019 if we have everyone else covered? Personally, I think he gets extended.

They might pay that. Remember , we have Mr. Glass at LT.

It doesn't matter ... I'm just a forward thinker.

Peat is in a contract year. With the plethora of contracts coming up, recent Easton signing & the drafting of Erik makes Andrus expendable.

Tom & Clapp (Rousar has done a good job of grooming these two) IMO is decent depth.

I just don't think Peat has played up to his draft status but that's just me.

I’ve learned over the years to not even worry about the offensive line.
Every year I’m concerned but somehow we manage to put together a top tier offensive line. The coaches seem to always get them to play cohesively even when they bring in guys from elsewhere. That’s hard to do. Most teams try to keep the same personnel intact.
