I heard he's healthy and looks good. He's going to get beat from time to time by speed rushers, but at least Drew can see it. I hear Marcel Jones looks good and is likely to take over next year.
The problem at left tackle is that Charles Brown is on final year of his rookie contract. If he has a great year (which I hope he does), he's going to draw a lot of attention in FA. We'd have to option to franchise him and give Armstead another year to develop. Armstead's skills would be a waste at RT. We'll see.

Strief has RT on lock down as long as he stays healthy. I can't imagine Brown having such a year that the Saints would pay top 5 salary via the tag. With the cash we have next year I imagine they are looking for a cheap replacement at LT if possible with Armstead.
