Saints News 7/17/13: Saints DB Jabari Greer To Co-Host Jazz Radio Show Monday

Chris Graythen

This jazz-loving Who Dat plans to tune into WWOZ 90.7 Monday 4-7:00 PM CT to listen to Greer's music selections. He plans to pick childhood favorites he first heard his father play. I hope he's a Wes Montgomery fan. Wouldn't mind also hearing some Miles Davis, Bill Evans, John Coltrane, and maybe a little Satchmo.



Who dat talkin' 'bout dem jazzy Saints?

New Orleans Saints DB Jabari Greer will Co-Host a Jazz Radio Show Monday
"My love of all music came from my father," Greer said. "I remember vividly growing up, Saturday morning with breakfast cooking and you could hear Miles Davis or Donald Byrd playing over the sizzling of bacon and whenever we drew back the curtains to let to light in, it was something magical in those moments. He would have the music blasting loud in between him making eggs and bacon and he and my mom would be dancing in the living room. It was just a symbol of life. Jazz and music in particular was just a symbol of life for me."

Washington Redskins ask judge to dismiss bounties lawsuit - ESPN
The team argues that an NFL collective bargaining agreement in place at the time required Green to exhaust grievance and arbitration procedures before filing a lawsuit, which he did not do. The team also says the statute of limitations for all Green's claims is three years from the time of his injury. Green said in his lawsuit he was suspicious he may have been targeted when he was hit in 2004, and team lawyers wrote he had enough information then to pursue his claims if he wanted. The allegations of a bounty program came to light more recently. Redskins coaches and players told The Associated Press in 2012 that Williams offered cash rewards for big hits and other plays -- a violation of NFL rules -- when he was coaching Washington's defense from 2004 to 2007. But they differed on whether it was a true bounty scheme that targeted specific players.
