Chris Chamberlain’s agent to file grievance against Saints

I hope this doesn't give Goodell another chance/reason to go after the Saints!
************************************************** ******
Linebacker Chris Chamberlain suffered a torn ACL last preseason with the New Orleans Saints that landed him on injured reserve for the entirety of the 2012 season.

Chamberlain was once again placed on injured reserve during the Saints’ cut-down to 75 players last week. On Tuesday, the Saints released Chamberlain from their injured reserve list with a designation that he failed to disclose a physical condition. The move could allow the Saints to get out of financial commitments that were otherwise owed to Chamberlain.

However, Chamberlain’s agent, Mark Slough, isn’t buying the reasoning behind the Saints move. Slough tweeted Tuesday that it was “bull” that Chamberlain had a prior undisclosed condition the team wasn’t aware of and they intend to file a grievance over the move.

Chamberlain never appeared in a regular season game for the Saints but started 16 games over four seasons with the St. Louis Rams, His best season came in 2011 when he recorded 81 tackles with two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception before signing with the Saints in free agency.

Only thing you can do if you are damaged goods, I guess.

It is hard to look at perpetual hurt as a hidden condition...
