The Saints are paying this guy “starting center” money. I thought we brought him in so he could either start at C or be a utility backup at G. I saw he was on inactive list and I guess he has been but I can’t understand why the organization is paying a guy that much money to be inactive. If Will Clapp is that much better (heaven forbid with the way Clapp got manhandled yesterday) why did we gv him all that money in the first place (4 yrs 22.5 mil)

Played well. Against vaia and suh. No sacks no flags. Bye peat.
Dunno if Easton would be better than Peat long term but good to have depth, if they scheme within his strengths.

Peat when healthy is a good Guard. Maybe not elite, but pretty good.

He has some off games but he always gets hurt and is hobbled for weeks on end, which hurts his game.

I did say during early preseason that Easton looked good enough to make Peat expendable. He had a few poor plays later on in pre-season but he looked good enough today again. Hopefully it continues.

So why the heck was he inactive?
I believe he was inactive because Peat also serves as the backup tackle. I don't think game to game, as backup, Easton would be doing Clapps role if Peat is starting.
