Zach Strief says he will not make it easy for Andrus Peat.

Zach Strief is getting older, but he is not ready to just hand over his starting spot to rookie Andrus Peat, who the team drafted in the first round. He also shot down the notion of him switching to play guard. 

“I’ve never played guard. I don’t expect to…” he said, via The New Orleans Advocate’s Joel Erickson. “People don’t realize Tim Lelito and Senio (Kelemete) are great.”

Strief says that rookie Andrus Peat will have to earn his starting spot, and Strief will not make it easy. He did say he understands that Peat will eventually be the guy, but he will have to earn it. 

“He’s taking my job eventually….My job and my role is to make that take as long as possible,” Strief said.
