Saints News, 8/18/15: Rob Ryan’s House is Sinking, and There’s a Lot of Weird Stuff Involved

New, comments

From ProFootballTalk.com: While there may be a metaphor in there for the Saints defense which he coordinates, this is in reference to his actual house, and he’s suing a pile of people for it. According to Andy Grimm of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Ryan has filed suit against the developer, builder and an engineering firm because his $2 million Uptown home is sinking.
