3. Terron Armstead

The biggest name on the entire free agent market entering the offseason was the Saints’ very own Terron Armstead, the team’s left tackle for the past nine years. Armstead has undoubtedly been one of the best players on the Saints for years, and his athleticism will surely be missed on the Saints’ offensive line.

Sure, you could argue that Armstead has been held back by injuries throughout his career, but his resumé speaks for himself. The former third-round pick has notched three Pro Bowl appearances in his career and has been a mainstay on the Saints’ front five as a captain of the team.

Armstead did stick around much longer than he should’ve in the offseason to give the Saints the opportunity to make some moves and bring him back to the team, but they opted to let him walk instead.

Not only did NOLA allow arguably their best offensive lineman to leave the team but they did so without bringing in any sort of help to replace him. Losing Terron Armstead is going to hurt the New Orleans Saints in 2022, especially with a recently recovered Jameis Winston back under center.

The New Orleans Saints are going to regret not re-signing Armstead next season.
