The New Orleans Saints have re-signed Andrus Peat to a five-year deal, worth $57.5 million dollars, with $33 million dollars guaranteed. At the time of the signing, Peat was - for what it’s worth - the best offensive lineman still on the market.
In addition to being an above-average NFL guard, Peat also represents the Saints backup left tackle behind the oft-injured Terron Armstead. Mickey Loomis, Sean Payton, and the Saints front office clearly valued that versatility.
Now, you’ve seen the comments and criticism of the deal, I’m sure.
