WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — The New Orleans Saints are testing out Andrus Peat in a couple of new spots.
Peat lined up at left tackle during team drills and got a look as a sixth offensive lineman in short-yardage situations, a role the Saints have used in the past.
“Part of it is rotation, you have to be able to have a swing position,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “If someone is down, that would be pretty common.”
New Orleans has often used its backup tackle as an extra offensive lineman in the past.
“There will be snaps if we want a bigger body out there,” Payton said. “Typically it would be our next tackle. Without defining a role right now he will certainly receive work at that.”
