Andrus Peat got a chance to see what the open market had to offer and has decided to return to the Saints.

The Saints announced that Peat has agreed to a five-year deal to remain in New Orleans. They did not announce any financial terms, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it is worth up to $57.5 million with $33 million guaranteed.

Peat, who was No. 80 on PFT’s list of the top free agents, has seen time all over the offensive line since joining the team as a first-round pick in 2015, but has settled in at left guard. He missed time with a broken arm last season, but returned for Week 17 and the team’s playoff loss to the Vikings.

Peat’s return ensures that the Saints will bring back their entire starting offensive line from last season.

  1. Saints seems to be doing well on being able to keep team integrity of all key players despite salary cap concerns, thanks to both players and management working together. Look’s like another serious run at the superbowl to me.

  2. The culture of the team and of the city, and their real potential for deep playoff runs every year, help keep many of the key elements of the Saints on board. David Oneymata, a good LB, mentioned that he had higher offers from other teams, but recently re-upped for three more years at a team- and cap -friendly price

  3. if Peat can stay healthy versatile LG/LT backup Armstead if he go down stay healthy and earn that money

  4. Too much money for an injury prone player. When he is healthy he isnt worth that, his stats prove that. I honestly would have preferred to see AJ Klines contract done.

  5. Yep ok with the signing.

    But that playoff loss the best drive of the day was when he was on the sidelines. Wish they would have not let him back in.

    He got owned that game
