I had the honor of being selected by New Orleans in the 2002 NFL draft, but when my telephone rang and former Saints coach Jim Haslett notified me I was their next selection, I was anything but honored. Considering I had just taken team visits to Miami, Dallas and San Diego, I was far from excited about being drafted by a city that was the poorest and most dangerous in America.

I was sad when he left as he was becoming a dominant interior lineman. Was sad to see his troubles in Cleveland and his career spiral downward. He'll always be a Saint. Root hard for us tomorrow LeCharles.
