2017 New Orleans Saints Training Camp Countdown No. 19 - Zach Strief

Posted Jul 7, 2017

Zach Strief is No. 19 on our countdown to 2017 Saints Training Camp presented by Verizon.

Entering his 12th year in the league, all with the New Orleans Saints, Zach Strief is the only other player besides Drew Brees to stay with the Saints since the 2006 rebirth season. A true definition of consistency, the right tackle has been one of the steady protectors for Brees in the pocket and hole-openers for the running backs.

The 6-foot-7, 350-pound right tackle will be a crucial component of the offensive line in 2017 espeically with the loss of starting left tackle Terron Armstead for at least part of the season.

Strief talked about the potential of the offensive line.

“I think top to bottom, this is probably the most talented group we’ve ever had," he said. "We’re fortunate to have the group that we got, but I think the sky’s the limit for our line."

Coming off one of his best seasons, the Super Bowl champion’s greatness will be missed the day he walks away from the game. The four-time captain has played in 140 games with 76 starts for the Saints, making him 17th on the club’s all-time games played list. The former seventh-round pick has been the starter on the right side of the line since 2011.
