Fight breaks out at Saints' practice-- Wed Jun 6 8:00 pm --
As frustration mounts in New Orleans
The New Orleans Saints have endured a frustrating offseason for obvious reasons. The offense - missing its quarterback and head coach - had a particularly rough Wednesday morning. Backup quarterback Chase Daniel was repeatedly picked off and his passes kept getting broken up. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that linebacker Curtis Lofton touched Daniel after one play, which touched off a fracas. Daniel threw the ball at Lofton, someone yelled "stay off the quarterback!" and pushing and shoving commenced. Rapoport tells us the fighting lasted a minute before everyone got back to work.

FF Today's Take:To say the least, New Orleans has certainly had an interesting offseason. Will the bounty saga and contract issues with Drew Brees be too much for this tenacious Saints team to overcome?
