Terron Armstead, Offensive Tackle
After being introduced into the starting lineup in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers in 2013, left tackle Terron Armstead hasn’t looked back. In 2014, he showed he was a big improvement over the former starting left tackle Charles Brown and he only missed snaps because of injuries.
Last season, Armstead really established himself as one the premier tackles in the entire National Football League. He was excellent in both pass and run protection all season and helped Drew Brees lead the league in passing yards once again. He only gave up 20 pressures all season and ranked as the third-best tackle only behind Joe Thomas and Tyron Smith, according to Pro Football Focus.
During the offseason, the Saints wisely awarded him with a 5-year, $64.5 million contract to make sure he doesn’t hit the open market anytime soon.
With his new contract and an offseason to get fully healthy, Terron Armstead should be able to perform and maybe improve on his already impressive stats. If he does that, then he would be fighting for a spot in the Pro Bowl and an All-Pro spot.
