Steve Gleason announces Saints pick

The former safety and special teams standout is best remembered for his blocked punt against the Falcons in 2006. It was the team's first home game for the team following Hurricane Katrina, and the moment became a symbol of the city's resiliency and rejuvenation.

Gleason told the public that he had ALS in 2011. Since then he has been a public advocate working to raise awareness of the disease.

Re: Steve Gleason announces Saints pick

As much as I loved to see him make the pick, it's a damn shame at the shape he's in...

I had a tear in my eye when he added the "who dat" at the end of the pick.

That was the only way Godhell wasn't getting booed on national TV. They didn't do that out of the goodness of their hearts........they did it to save face. And that pisses me off!!!
