The New Orleans Saints are giving rookie tackle Terron Armstead his first big shot in the NFL during the team’s biggest game of the season against the Carolina Panthers.

Armstead has the biggest endorsement of all from his quarterback, Drew Brees. via the team’s official site:

“(I’m) Excited for him. He has continued to improve each and every day, obviously running the scout team. But, throughout training camp and into the season here, I think he’s just been biding time and waiting for his opportunity. That opportunity came along for Jermon Bushrod when Jammal Brown got hurt. It came along for Zach Strief. I remember during his rookie season when Jammal Brown went down one game, and Strief had to step in and play against one of the better pass-rushers in the league at the time that week. (It is a) Great challenge for him, a great opportunity. I’m excited for him. I’ve got a lot of confidence in him. He was excited as well.”

It is surely a big opportunity for Armstead. The rookie will have his hands full against names like Greg Hardy and Charles Johnson, so Brees better be excited—his health may depend on it come Sunday.

We know how Brees feels—how do you feel about Armstead getting the nod against the Panthers.
