NEW ORLEANS, LA (WLOX) - Andrus Peat, a 6-foot-7, 313 pound offensive lineman, participated in the Saints rookie minicamp last weekend and that's when contract negotiations began to get serious.
The NFL's No. 13 overall pick is expected to play at right tackle. Saints head coach Sean Payton says he could be the bookend to Terron Armstead.
Of course, he could end up anywhere on the offensive line. That's an area that needs an upgrade. Veteran quarterback Drew Brews hasn't had the time to sit back in the pocket and find open receivers. Over the last two seasons, Brees has been hit too many times and he's been forcing passes due to a lack of pass protection.
