NFL Rumors: Chase Daniel Started a Fight During Saints Practice?
According to the Missourian, there was a big scuffle during a recent New Orleans Saints practice.
It was reportedly started by backup quarterback Chase Daniel.
According to the report, Daniel threw an interception to cornerback Mike Jenkins during an 11-on-11 non-contact drill. Immediately following the play, linebacker Curtis Lofton bumped into Daniels.
After that, Daniel threw the ball at Lofton's feet in disgust, which sparked a confrontation between him and Lofton as the two began jawing at each other. Guard Jahari Evans then came to the rescue and split the two apart.
Unfortunately, after the initial confrontation, nearly all the players came on the field and got in on the action.
"It wasn't necessarily in frustration," Daniel told the Missourian. "I was just mad that he literally just ran into me. But we cleared it up. We're good. ... It was hot, we were in the middle of practice, emotions flying everywhere and that's what happened."
Some players made the event positive after it, thinking it was good competitive-wise.
"We're competitors and I think it's healthy," said Lofton.
