Week 6 Outlook
New Orleans Saints RT Ryan Ramczyk has reportedly signed a five-year, $90 million contract extension with the team through the 2026 season, making him the new highest-paid right tackle in the league, per Adam Schefter.
Ramczyk is guaranteed $60 million with the new contract extension. He has been extremely durable and effective during his first four seasons in the league with the Saints, earning All-Pro honors in 2019 and missing only one regular-season game back in 2018. The Saints could implement a heavier run-centric offense without Drew Brees, allowing Ramczyk to set the edge for Alvin Kamara and deliver excellent pass protection for either Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill in 2021.
The New Orleans Saints have selected offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk with the No. 32 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
It's clear that the Saints wanted to run the ball, acquiring Adrian Peterson earlier this week. The addition of Ramczyk further cements that idea, as he'll likely slide in at left guard immediately. He was the No. 1 tackle on some analyst's boards, but no lower than No. 3 on any of them. He not only helps Peterson and Mark Ingram, but he'll also provide additional support for Drew Brees.
