New Orleans Saints’ safety Marcus Maye was reportedly arrested for aggravated assault with a firearm this morning. Nick Underhill, writer, was the first to report the incident on Sept. 1.

In a statement from Maye’s attorney, he states that Maye denies all allegations.

After acquiring Maye from the New York Jets in March, the Saints signed the former Florida Gator to a three year, 28.5-million-dollar deal.

Maye is also awaiting a court date on Nov. 16th for a DUI charge that he received in Florida in February of 2021. It is currently unclear how these two incidents will coincide with one another.

This news comes just one day after news broke of Chauncey Gardner-Johnson being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles. In roughly 24 hours, the Saints could potentially lose two of their most talented secondary pieces, depending on the legal consequences for Maye.
