Saints News: 7.03.08

The Times-Pic has an update on the Charles Grant story.

Saints defensive end Charles Grant reportedly is facing a $5 million civil lawsuit in addition to legal charges stemming from his alleged involvement in a fight that led to the shooting death of a pregnant woman outside of a nightclub in Blakely, Ga., in February.

According to WGNO-TV, Grant's attorney, Edward Tolley, confirmed that the aunt of victim Korynda Reed filed the lawsuit. Tolley could not be reached for comment Wednesday, and details of the suit could not be confirmed.

The article also says that it is not known whether the family filed civil lawsuits against any of the other defendants. I'm sure none of them have as much money as Charles Grant either.

Houma Today had an article from Teddy Renois giving his all-time Saints team from 1970-1979. The older fans might enjoy this one.

One thing I learned from this one is that there was a Saints player named Happy Feller.

In a piece ESPN was writing about Rodney Harrison being a dirty player, we learn a little something about our very own Will Smith.

A review of data since 2001 shows Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson with a league-high 17 personal fouls. Harrison and New Orleans Saints defensive end Will Smith are tied for second with 14, followed by Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour (13), Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor (12), late Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor (12) and Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Shaun Rogers (11).

I never really knew that about Big Willy Style.

If for some reason you were planning to bet on the Saints this season, I have found some advice for you. This comes from Covers.com.

Fred (St Louis) - Will the New Orleans Saints bounce back this year and make it into the playoffs?  And are they a good bet at 11-10 to win there division or would it be even better to bet them to win the conference at 8-1?

Michael Perry: Let's say you had $500 to bet and were deciding which one to do. I would put $400 to win $440 to win division and $100 to win $800 on the NFC. Diversify your betting porfolio. That way you wont be yelling at yourself, "Why didnt I pull the trigger on the Saints?"

That is too funny. The things I find for you guys.

This one isn't really Saints related but I will be following Matt Forte very closely this year, and yesterday he was officially signed by the Bears. Per the Chicago Bears official website. The field is wide open at the running back spot in the windy city, so he could very well be starting in week one. Last I heard, the team was very impressed with him during OTAs and minicamp. Roll Wave!
