Veteran right tackle Zach Strief announced his retirement on Monday, bringing an end to a 12-year career spent entirely in New Orleans.There are far more enjoyable and less strenuous ways to destroy brains anyway. Good luck, Zach. You were a pretty shitty tight end.
Drafted out of Northwestern in the seventh round of the Saints' pivotal 2006 class, Strief spent five years as a backup tackle before ascending to the starter's role and becoming one of the locker room's enduring figures, a leader in the offensive line room and a standout player at right tackle.
Speaking of which, as shitty tight ends go, this one was a pretty good receiver.
The #Saints have strong interest in a reunion with TE Jimmy Graham. The feeling is mutual. @MikeGarafolo mentioned this weeks ago, and there is a lot of momentum toward this. A good reason to never burn bridges…— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 12, 2018
Wonder if Drew asked specifically for that in contract negotiations.
