3. Let Terron Armstead Walk

This might be listed as an “easy” decision but it’ll be difficult watching Terron Armstead sign with another team and wearing a different uniform in the 2022 season. Unless he’s willing to take a massive hometown discount, this needs to happen, sadly.

Armstead is one of the best left tackles in the league but he’s struggled with injuries throughout his career. That right there is why the Saints shouldn’t retain him. If he were healthy, trying to keep him would be a no-brainer for the team but that’s not the case.

Armstead has never started every single regular-season game during the course of his nine-year career. With a projected market value of four years $95 million per Spotrac, the Saints should absolutely let another team dish out that kind of money for the former third-round pick.

Teams will absolutely be willing to pay Armstead nearly $100 million but it should not be New Orleans. They have bigger fish to fry.
