Reid G. "... goal is to find a forum that will compel #NFL to share evidence" I Saints grievance hearings coming May 16, 30 http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/05/12/saints-grievance-hearings-coming-on-may-16-30/

Reid G.Anyone know who actually hears these grievances and how they're adjudicated?

Reid G.@TripTP Mike, who governs the grievance process filed by the Saints? Is Goodell solely responsible for hearing the grievances?

Mark Ingram Man God is good!! Blessed to see another day!!

Larry HolderHeath Evans said yesterday that Drew Brees will miss his May 16 charity softball game if Brees isn't signed. Evans doesn't have high hopes.

Chase Daniel@LHolderCBS too bad. Probably good for drew that he will miss the softball game as I don't want to embarrass him in HomeRun Derby!

Larry Holder@ChaseDaniel Honestly, one of the first things I thought of when Heath told me that was that you'll win the Derby by a landslide.

Albert BreerSorting thru rookie minicamp stuff, my annual brake-pumping: Most impressive show I ever saw at one of those was put on by ... Chad Jackson.

Albert BreerAnd I think anyone who was at Patriots rookie camp in 2006 would back me on that. Jackson was SPEC-TAC-ULAR. Which meant little in long run.
