Saints Get Testy, Fight Ensues During Practice


Recommended Posts

The New Orleans Saints have endured a frustrating offseason for obvious reasons. The offense -- missing its quarterback and head coach -- had a particularly rough Wednesday morning. Backup quarterback Chase Daniel was repeatedly picked off and his passes kept getting broken up. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that linebacker Curtis Lofton touched Daniel after one play, which touched off a fracas.

Daniel threw the ball at Lofton, someone yelled "stay off the quarterback!" and pushing and shoving commenced.

Practice fights are a rite of summer. Fights usually pick up in volume in training camp, when the hitting truly starts and the players are more ornery. But the Saints have plenty to be ornery about now so they got started early.

Rapoport tells us the fighting lasted a minute before everyone got back to work. Meanwhile, Drew Brees was somewhere filming a NyQuil ad.

just curious but I thought there was no contact in OTA under the new CBA rule.

so will goodell do something to them? like make them miss practice or fine them?

ok it happened to the seahawks june 5th and they missed 2 OTA and 1 workout.

seeing how this happened the day after the fines and warning to all teams were passed out.....then you can expect something worse to happen to the saints.

the report and lofton and daniels all said the words touching.

but something tells me Vilma will come out of no where a month after the fines and say how he is suing goodell for this as well.
