5 New Orleans Saints players who won't be back in 2024

This is going to be an offseason of resetting, in some ways.

3. Andrus Peat, OT

Andrus Peat began his career in New Orleans as a first-round pick back in 2015 and gave the Saints three strong seasons in a row, right away. But, over the last couple of years, his play has started to level out and the team might want to go a different direction for multiple reasons. It isn't just the fact that his play has been middling.

The cap is going to be an issue, as we'll talk even more about later. With Peat's pedigree as a former first rounder and a stable offensive tackle over the years, he'll still command more money than the Saints should be willing to pay him. Plus, he is going to turn 31 in the middle of next season and has had his fair share of injuries at times during his career.

Offensive line has always been a staple for the Saints' organization. They do a great job drafting, and I think replacing Peat in the draft is going to be the route we see them go this offseason. The class is extremely deep and New Orleans could find a starting tackle within the top three rounds, without a doubt.
