New Orleans Saints: Who should replace Andrus Peat?
With New Orleans Saints guard Andrus Peat out injured for multiple weeks, who will Sean Payton call on to be his in-game replacement?
With the thirteenth pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints select guard Andrus Peat from the University of Stanford. The Saints have had a history of using their draft picks to perfection and this guard proved to be just that.
Peat is coming off of a Pro-Bowl season in 2018 and was on pace to complete another one this season. In 2018, he played 70% of snaps and got to the Pro-Bowl. This year, he is up to 87% of offensive snaps and was making the most of them.
Last week in the game against the Atlanta Falcons, Andrus Peat broke his arm. This injury required surgery and just like that Peat Pro-Bowl season just got six games shorter.
Because of that, the New Orleans Saints are in need of a replacement at the guard position. Sean Payton and Peter Carmichael Jr. have two options — Will Clapp, who filled in for Peat when he left last Sunday, and veteran Nick Easton.
Here are the pros and cons for both replacements and the answer to who should fill in for Andrus Peat.
