NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - The New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with T Zach Strief on a five-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Strief started 15 regular season games and both postseason contests in 2013 at right tackle and has held down that position since 2011, opening 38 regular season games and four playoff contests over the last three seasons at the position.  

 "We are excited to announce that Zach will stay with us into the future," said Loomis. "Not only has he done an excellent job at the right tackle position, but he has served us well as an offensive team captain for the past two seasons and has always been a great asset in the community since he first came here in 2006."

Strief was selected by the Saints in the seventh round (210th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft and has appeared in 109 career regular season games with 45 starts and has played in 10 postseason contests with four starts at right tackle.

    I’m tracking cloudy skies to the east of I-65 and mostly sunny skies to the west of I-65. This is impacting temperatures already and will result in highs in the middle 70s west and upper 60s east. I do expect thinning clouds this afternoon from west to east.
