Saints News, 8/3/15: Saints QB Garrett Grayson Gets Called out by Sean Payton

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: First, the New Orleans Saints rookie quarterback had to rap in front of his teammates on Saturday night. Then he got called out for it while being admonished by coach Sean Payton on the field the next day. After Grayson had trouble getting the team lined up, Payton yelled something to the effect of, "I know you can rap, but what else can you do?" "He didn't like our break, so he made me get back and called me out," Grayson said, before focusing on the bright side. "He did say I can rap, so I guess that's a good thing."
