Saints News, 5/19/15: Zach Strief Ready To Do 'Anything' To Help Rookie Andrus Peat

New, comments

From WWLTV.com: "I'll do anything I can to help him out. I know the perception of the team replacing you or the thought of that -- I don't feel that way. I feel like he was an excellent value for them, a player they feel really highly about. Someone I'll spend a lot of time trying to help," Strief said. "I want him to trust me. And so having a good relationship will be the first step in building that."

With the NFL's owners gathered in San Francisco for quarterly meetings, some important business potentially will be transacted over a large bowl of Rice-A-Roni.

Jim Kelly on #DeflateGate: Tom Brady "doesn’t need to do that" | ProFootballTalk
