3. New Orleans Saints

There’s obviously a shot that Terron Armstead returns to the Big Easy, a place where he has spent the entirety of his decade-long career. The Saints spent a third-round pick on Armstead in the 2013 NFL Draft and he’s gone on to prove he’s more than worthy of holding up the left side of the line.

The problem for the Saints, however, is that they don’t have much money and they need to find a way to extend Marcus Williams. Between the two, Armstead plays the more important position but Williams is younger and healthier. Armstead missed a good chunk of the season and is clearly on the wrong side of 30.

Unless Armstead is willing to take a major hometown discount, I’m not sure how much of a contender New Orleans is for his services. Left tackles can make bank in free agency and with Armstead being one of the better ones out there, he definitely can get paid like a premier left tackle, even with his injury history.
