The New Orleans Saints have been looking to rebuild their offensive line over the last few years and one of their key players in left tackle Terron Armstead. It looks like he will be sticking around for the next few years after he signed a hefty extension.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news, via SportsCenter anchor Josina Anderson.
The terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but it does lock up Armstead through the 2021 season.

This is huge news for the Saints as Armstead could play a big role in the team’s offensive line along with undrafted free agent signing Landon Turner and starting center Max Unger.
Terron Armstead was drafted by the Saints in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft and was made a starter for the team almost immediately. He is a key player for the team and could end up being a big part of their turnaround going forward.
