Now, with this new deal, Ruiz will be with the team through at least the 2027 season.

He has made 40 starts after being the 24th overall pick in the 2020 Draft. He has played in 46 regular season games overall.

He has spent the majority of his time on the line at right guard. However, Ruiz has also played some time at center.

Ruiz will be one of the five men, who will protect Derek Carr this season. Carr signed with the Saints this off-season after being released by the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this year.
