Saints News, 8/19/15: Sean Payton has Clear Message for Players who Want to Fight in Joint Practices

From Via Jeff Darlington of NFL Media, Payton told players on Tuesday night, “If you decide to fight, pack your bags.” The potential for fights is believed to be one of the reasons why the Saints passed on joint practices with the Texans. There’s no such worry with the Patriots. “We’ve had a great working relationship with Saints,” New England coach Bill Belichick told reporters on Wednesday, via Darlington. “Players work hard — but they do it the right way.”
