Where will Terron Armstead sign in free agency?

The answer to this question could be — Any team with a desperate need at left tackle.

The Saints will be in that situation once Terron Armstead officially leaves but they shouldn’t retain him. The 30-year-old former third-round pick has spent his entire nine-year career in the Big Easy and has been one of the best left tackles in the league during that time.

Armstead’s production isn’t the problem. We all know he can flat-out dominate when he’s healthy and able to take his spot on the offensive line. The problem is that Armstead is injury-prone and for the amount of money he’s going to receive this offseason, that’s not something New Orleans should gamble with.

If the Saints keep Armstead, I’ll be really surprised. The injuries and being on the wrong side of 30 should not make them contenders to re-sign him. With how badly the Bengals’ offensive line looked throughout the season (especially in the Super Bowl), they’ll be a serious contender for Armstead’s services.

Prediction: Armstead signs a 4-year deal with the Bengals
