Saints News, 11/13/15: Players Say Payton Rumors 'The Least of their Concerns'

New, comments

From Larry Holder: "There's a hundred other things talked about in this locker room," seventh-year punter Thomas Morstead said. Or, as 10th-year offensive lineman Zach Strief said: "The last thing anybody in here is worried about is a media report about a change that's happening in the offseason. No, it's the least of my concerns."
