New Orleans Saints: NFL Settlement; Porter, Harper, Sharper, Ingram
Written by 

According to Jason Lacanfora of NFL Network, the e-mail from NFLPA player representatives to the rank-and-file was never sent. Multiple reports have confirmed that work will continue and that a vote will happen when the deal is ready. There is a chance that a vote will come sooner than Monday. 

Per Pro Football Talk, a source with direct knowledge of the dynamics, a vote will happen when the deal points and the language of the settlement are completed. 

 There has been nothing yet to suggest that a vote will be taken on Saturday, but that could change quickly. 

SOME hither, others yon: Saints cornerback Tracy Porter underwent offseason on his left knee, a procedure believed to have involved micro fracture elements. The micro fracture was used to "simulate healing."  Porter played on a torn lateral  meniscus for much of last season as his interceptions dropped from four to one...Saints strong safety Roman Harper said he's confident that he'll get a deal done with the Saints so he remain with the team. "I would like to come back, but I don't have any control of that," said the six-year veteran. He said he will consider all options... 

Free safety Darren Sharper said playing as a backup to Malcolm Jenkins is something he'll have to decide on after the settlement is reached. "It's tough if you're sitting on the sidelines if you've 100 per cent healthy.," said the 15-year veteran...Saints rookie Mark Ingram was scheduled to resume his workouts in  New Orleans on Saturday after being involved in an auto accident with a n 18-wheeler in Huntsville, Ala. early Friday morning. "I didn't get a scratch," said the first-round draft choice...Parting thought: "The noblest of dogs is the hotdog; it feeds the hand that bites it."

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
