You’ve probably read a bunch by now about the Saints fighting at practice, as it has drawn some headlines. While the NFL looks into it, the Saints are clear they know the rules to mini-camps and OTAs.
But how much does this fight really mean?
I laughed at LB Curtis Lofton’s story about how Falcons coach Mike Smith made him hold hands with a dude he fought a few years back. And I was intrigued by S Malcolm Jenkins talking about how the team actually got into a big fight at a practice before a playoff game last year.
No wonder there were such shrugs yesterday.
“During practice,” said Jenkins, who didn’t specify the practice when the team fought. “Nothing new. But it’s not a big deal to us. It just goes to the intensity of practice and the guys competing. Fights don’t happen when guys are lollygagging. When there’s a fight, that just shows your practices mean something. We’re actually trying to get better.”
