TWEETS:

ESPN reporter John Barr said he had no comment on anything at this point. Wasn't aware of La. State Police presser on eavesdropping.

Now this: VH1 is canceling Chad Johnson's reality show 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.

State Police say there was zero evidence GM Mickey Loomis participated in any eavesdropping... Thanks for confirming the obvious!

Saw it coming from the moment called John Barr a "consummate professional" didn't we?

Classic ESPN to pile on Saints when down with hearsay to sensationalize a scandal. Let's see if they admit being wrong & unethical. Doubt it

let's see you guys step up and report the eavesdrop story on Loomis was bogus. Does your network have the stones to admit?

I hope Mickey Loomis sues for their reckless and unethical running of a story without a shred of proof or evidence.

GM Mickey Loomis to hold press conference at the Superdome. State police say they found no evidence in eavesdropping.

Lofton on what the Saints D has done well "We are stopping the man in our 7-man fronts & I feel like we are starting to tackle well"

Lofton on what they can improve on "Some leaky yards after contact. We would like to see more footballs out & get to the QB a little more"

Great to be back at practice with the boys. Thanks for all the messages of sympathy

Let's try to be more professional next time, Greg. RT : Outside The Lines doesn't do rumors, son. Believe it.
