The Saints have invested heavily in a quarterback, and they want to make sure to protect him.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Saints have picked up the fifth-year option on offensive lineman Andrus Peat, keeping him under contract through 2019.

The 13th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the tackle from Stanford bounced around a bit his first two years, but settled in at left guard and became a steady player for them.

Peat ended last year on injured reserve after suffering a broken ankle in the wild card round of the playoffs.

  1. He’s lucky the Giants didn’t pick him, otherwise he would have been unfairly stuck at LT, instead of FLowers, and been a bust.

    Every projected top Tackle that year, became a Guard. Scherff, Peat and Collins (Collins, the UDFA because of the unfortunate situation), except Flowers.

    One of the glaring reasons Reese and Ross are gone. Should have gotten a LT and let Flowers be something he could have been, like the other teams did, instead of a becoming a bust. That is on the management and (possibly, or) the coaching staff.

    Wrong Peat was actually a left tackle in college and has come in place of Armstead and played great at the left tackle position. Just don’t ask Peat to play right tackle as he’s terrible anywhere on the right side of the line.

    Actually your wrong dude. The 23rd pick in the 2015 draft, 6″5/320pd uber athletic LT Humphries is by far the best LT in that draft class. Humphries is extremely athletic, he’s a stud in pass-protection giving up 0 sacks and only a handful of hurries in his 11 starts at LT since being moved back to his natural position @ LT once he showed he could play after redshirting his rookie year, and Humphries is an outright monster in the run game , an elite caliber run blocker. Fully healthy this year I fully expect Humphries to make the Pro-Bowl or earn All-Pro Honors, or both. Humphries is an excellent LT, one of the best young up and coming LT’s in the NFL, The only reason he slipped to late round 1 is because he was extremely young, coming out of Florida as a true Junior at just 20 years, which caused teams to balk as he was so raw but all the athletic traits were there for him to be a Pro-Bowl caliber LT. Its why he sat out his entire rookie year.
