Was looking at his contract. His cap number actually drops this year to $13M and then he's a FA in 2021. Given that he just played 15 games (not looking it up but that has to be his best effort at staying on the field), do we go ahead and extend him to free up more space?

He's only 28 years old and it's obviously not easy to find an elite LT and we may already have a hole at LG.

Absolutely.

I think he finally getting right. This was his healthy season yet. Team friendly Extension, maybe?

Hopefully the fact that he's getting close to 30 and that he has had injury issues will lead to a smaller deal this time around than his monster one four years ago.

Yes, I think you'll see an even higher level of play from him if you upgrade the Left Guard position next to him as well.

I agree, that this was his best season health wise but I would keep my eye open for potential replacement if we saw some one in the mid-rounds.

I'm ok with keeping Armstead...he and Brees have good chemistry. Now Peat on the other hand...

Lock in our tackles. McCoy improves. Upgrade a guard this offseason.

Get another RB. Doesn’t have to be a flashy signing. Let’s get 3 headed monster and pound the ball.

100%.. Him and Ram should be priorities. Peat will be gone. Interested to see what happens with Von Bell with the emergence of Gardner-Johnson. Lattimore has got to start being more consistent especially in the playoffs but he will get paid.
