Saints | Simmons placed on reserve list
Sun, 30 Jul 2006 14:51:52 -0700

Sheldon Mickles, of the Advocate, reports the New Orleans Saints have placed LB Anthony Simmons, who was expected to open camp as a starter, on the reserve-did not report list. Head coach Sean Payton said the team has been in contact with Simmons, who is dealing with a personal issue.


Read on a different Saints' site that he may be quitting the team. Wow.

He's supposedly in a vicious custody battle with an ex.

Which is understandable... family comes first.

I really hope he can get this problem resolved quickly.
I agree though, family does come first, even more so when it's a custody battle.

I was pissed that he didn't show up for the first day of camp because I believe that he will be one of the most vital pieces to a rejuvenated defense; but if a custody battle really is the reason for him not showing up, then I wish him the best and I can only hope that he still has the energy to love football.
