Raiders Sign T Andrus Peat

Las Vegas Raiders sign T Andrus Peat

On Monday, the Las Vegas Raiders sign T Andrus Peat, a 6-foot-7, 316 pound tackle and guard who is a three-time Pro Bowler from 2018 to 2020. Peat has spent the previous nine seasons with the New Orleans Saints from 2015 to 2023.

The Saints drafted Peat in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft at 13th overall. Peat signed a four-year, $11.39 million contract with the Saints which was fully guaranteed and included a $6.54 million signing bonus. Starting the 2015 season as a backup offensive guard, Peat got his first career start at left guard against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 20, 2015.

Unfortunately, Peat suffered a leg injury later that year which limited his rookie campaign to only 12 games played and 8 starts. In the following 2016 season, Peat made starts at both left guard and left tackle following an injury to then teammate Terron Armstead.

Peat started 14 games for the Saints in 2017 as a left guard. Peat was taken off the field after an injury in the playoffs wild card round. He was diagnosed with a broken fibula and a high ankle sprain and was placed on injured reserve on January 10, 2018. On April 13 that same year, the Saints picked up Peat’s fifth year option, which led to Peat signing a five-year $57.5 million contract with the Saints in 2020.

The injury bug wouldn’t leave in 2021 as Peat was once again placed on the injured reserve in Week 7 after suffering a torn pectoral in a matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. In his NFL career, Peat played across 111 games with 102 starts. We’ve got our fingers crossed that the Mesa, Arizona native will stay on the field in the 2024 NFL season as the Raiders sign T Andrus Peat.

Peat played at Stanford University from 2012 to 2014 across 40 games while starting in 27. As a junior, he started in 13 games at left tackle and was awarded with first team All-American, first team All-Pac-12 selection and an Outland Trophy semifinalist.

Adding more depth to their offense, the Las Vegas Raiders sign T Andrus Peat following the recent signings of WR Jalen Guyton and WR Michael Gallup.
