The plan for Penning is at LT but of course he’ll have to compete for the starting role.
That is the absolute right move. Big Ram is no slouch when it comes to moving people and having him and McCoy Flanking Ruiz might get the right side working if people just stays healthy this coming season.
Also he doesn't have to spend a ton of time getting comfortable on the other side of the line, its a process that takes a little time and quite some reps.

I like the pick, him and Ram are hopefully going to be awesome bookends on the O-line.

I hope he can stay healthy and learn on the field early - the Saints have had some bad luck in that department with McCoy and Ruiz.

Positions are incentivized, it is the only way to maintain consistent effort on the 0-line.

Trent Brown or similar players might be the only exception as they are incentivized to lose weight lol.
Ramczyk has special incentives written into his contract for time spent specifically at the left tackle position. This is to what I was referring. Keeping him at RT saves the team future cap space. I never said a word about doing away with the position or doing away with any incentives. I'm not sure where you got that idea.

Read that back to your self, a few times. Then go look up where Ram was playing when he made All Pro for three years. Now look up NLTBE in regards to NFL incentivization and cap hit.


After you have done all that and realize that there is no relief because that was never a cap hit. Next consider the fact that whom ever is in that spot might just f***ing get some incentivization built into his contract.

I have a hunch that Penning is going to cause a few training camp fights lol.

All this talk about Penning having a mean streak is nonsense.

He's a gentle giant, a good Christian boy from the middle of Iowa.
