Saints News, 2/15/16: Peyton Manning Named In Tennessee Lawsuit

The New Orleans Saints are still parsing through their salary cap situation, and according to Evan Woodbery of NOLA, they're likely under the cap now. Around the league, recent Super Bowl champion Peyton Manning has been specifically named in a lawsuit against the University of Tennessee, in which more incidents were named than the one that is widely known. Earl Thomas has also pleaded for the NFL to go the NBA route and allow players to express themselves more.
