Saints News, 2/24/14: Will Saints Work Out Deal To Keep Zach Strief in Black and Gold?

Scott Halleran

Strief's agent recently said, “There is a (willingness) to get something done on both sides, and we had a good meeting and discussions.” I know this statement from a player's agent doesn't mean much, but it wouldn't surprise me if Sean Payton really did want Strief back with the team, assuming they can get him at a reasonable price. Strief had what was most likely his best year this past season even though the O-line as a whole struggled in several road games.
