jonathan goodwin #incollege I got in trouble for getting the hook up lol. One of my best learning experiences.

Reggie Bush The offense destroyed the defense at the Heath Evans Charity event last week. Here's my home run from the game.http://tinyurl.com/3bvmxsn

Johnny Patrick When u land on run way and sit for 30 min its the worst...

Leigh Torrence Jr You can't lead where you don't go, and you can't teach what you don't know! #focusonyou

Larry Holder Owners wanted to look more into defenseless player rule changes after N.O. meetings, revisit this week. No surprise to me the rules passed

New Orleans Saints Jimmy Graham's 67.7% 1st down percentage (1st downs/recs) ranked 2nd among rookie TEs last season who had at least 30 catches

Jeff Duncan Good news: From Bags to Riches will be available in digital format for eReader in two weeks. Long overdue, but better late than never.

Mike Triplett #Saints receiver Marques Colston, guard Carl Nicks to be featured on NFL Network's top-100 players show Sunday night. Ranked between 51-60.

Mike Triplett A total of five #Saints made the list, which is based on votes from players. The other 3 haven't been named yet. They're in the top 50.

Mike Triplett Pleasantly surprised to see Colston rated so high after being underrated for so long. He's ahead of M.Austin, G.Jennings, B.Marshall, etc.    

gregg rosenthal Jammal Brown will be intriguing FA gamble. Former 1st team All-Pro tackle. Only 30. Further away from hip surgery.

Andrew Brandt Along w/Rookie Symposium, other casualties of labor dispute were joint NFL-NFLPA player education programs at Harvard and Wharton.

daniel kaplan Nfl teams in 2011 can be fined for an as yet to be deterimined # of illegal hits; reporters are calling the policy the anti steelers rule

gregg rosenthal Not letting anyone play football: An effective way reduce helmet-to-helmet collisions.

Andrew Brandt Role reversal: NFL had filed unfair labor charge w/NLRB accusing NFLPA of bad faith bargaining. Now NBPA has filed same charge against NBA

daniel kaplan Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will speak to the NFL owners tonight at a cocktail reception

Albert Breer 1 thing I found interesting from Pash presser: He raised poss of including "true-ups" in new CBA, when fixed-vs-percentage argument came up.

Albert Breer ... The lack of true-ups in March 11 owners' proposal was a problem forth players. Gap can be bridged there.

Jim Trotter Casey Anthony's attorney didn't waste time slinging mud. I thought it would take at least two days. Incredulous.    

 

 

Saints Stuff

Saints' Jonathan Casillas hopes lockout doesn't derail comeback - ESPN
Jonathan Casillas was tantalizingly close to rising from the ranks of the undrafted to an NFL starter in a mere two seasons, only to have a freak injury in the last exhibition game of 2010 relegate him to rehab.

Bush Could Draw Interest From Several Different Teams " Saints Gab
Said one team executive: "The thing with (Bush) will be timing. You don’t want to run out when free agency eventually starts, and sign a (versatile) back, and then have Bush pop free, because the Saints can’t afford him. You might be kicking yourself for not waiting on Bush, and seeing what his market is out there. So it’s probably going to take some legwork, you know?"
