It often comes down to the league’s so-called personal conduct policy, which gives Goodell...

Which New Orleans’ neighborhoods would these Saints players be?

About a year ago, in the boringness of the offseason, a former co-host of mine with The NOLA Rundown, Michael Flowers, found a way to make the offseason a little more exciting by matching New Orleans Saints players with New Orleans neighborhoods. The idea is, of course, the player perfectly represents that neighborhood. The end result could be giving him the nickname of “West Bank”...
