New Orleans Saints starting offensive line unit hasn't had much change in recent years.

All-Pro Ryan Ramczyk has manned the outside at right tackle, Terron Armstead has held down the fort at right tackle, Larry Warford has earned three Pro Bowls at right guard, and Andrus Peat has typically been at the left guard position, though he's taken snaps all over the line.

But the latter could change this offseason, as Peat is entering free agency after spending the first five years of his career in New Orleans. Peat declined to comment back in January on what the future could potentially hold for him, but he said he has treasured his time in the Crescent City.



"It's been awesome, man," Peat said of his time as a Saint during the Pro Bowl week in Orlando. "This city has been great. You can't ask for a better group of guys. I've enjoyed being in the city of New Orleans."

Armstead, the longest-tenured member of the offensive line, remembers the days after Peat was drafted 2015, admitting that time has flown by.

"Now he's five years in and entering free agency," Armstead said. "It's crazy how fast it goes. Andrus has been great and he's a great teammate.

"He's really quiet. He don't say much. I play next to him and he still don't say much, but that's just him though. He's a calm-natured guy, real quiet and reserved guy. But, I know we would all love to have him back."

I wish Peat well. Never lived up to his draft status & he isn't worth 9M & we have other players to sign.

Brees needs an ALL PRO guard more than ever in 2020.

Free Agents Thuney and Brandon Scherff comes to mind.

I am not entirely sure the statement that the "New Orleans Saints starting offensive line unit hasn't had much change in recent years" is correct.

Peat has only started 23 of the last 36 games... seems like the o-line sees weekly starting change. Peat hitting free agency also speaks to the validity of his Pro-Bowl selection as well.

I'd praise everyone else for being the most versatile lineman, they have to make up for Peats inadequacies every week

He had a massive cap hit last year (9.6m), and I'm guessing someone will pay him $7 million this year.

He grabbed a sammich on the way out of the Saints' facility.

:smh: Smash, you ain't right, Bro...

Plain, Spicy?!? WTF, big boy needs to add some lettuce to that diet and needs to cut out the soft drinks; and if he eats the spicy, you'd need to quarantine his ass for six hours after masticating that sammich...

Big boy needs to hire Yoda as a personal trainer and focus more on those Jedi calisthenics like running through the swamp and put the lightsabre down till he actually has some balance and core strength...

Plain, Spicy, Chicken Sammich, wow, just, wow...

The one with my brother giving Popeye's Chicken Sammich Testimony to his ole' lady is still the best...

The only reason he will stay in New Orleans.
