Saints News: June 1, 2013 - Shanle Goes After NFLPA On Twitter

New, comments

In my favorite news of the day, PFT fired up the start of their Mt. Saintsmore monument vote just as ours has ended. The Circle of Life, bitches. It's almost like we're getting a redo, but DON'T CALL IT A RUNOFF!!! Haha. also, Sean Payton talks Cadet and Cam Jordan in the post-OTAs videos, and Shanle goes after the NFLPA in tweets.

Former Saints LB Scott Shanle is upset with the NFLPA's fiscal discipline.
