Saints News, 1/11/16: Andrus Peat Looking Forward to Focusing on What Matters this Offseason

From Nick Underhill at The Advocate: “I feel like I got a little bit behind not being in the greatest shape,” the offensive tackle said. “I’m really going to focus on that coming into next year.” The way Peat’s rookie season started put him in a difficult position. Since his college operates on a quarter system, he wasn’t allowed to report to New Orleans until Stanford’s academic year ended, which forced him to miss some of the team’s offseason program.
