"Saints coach Sean Payton explained in May why the team pursued Granderson even with the legal issue.

“We felt real comfortable with everything we knew, and so far he’s done a good job here," Payton said after the second day of Saints rookie minicamp."

Lol well that's awkward....looks like the advice Payton got wasn't that trust worthy considering the guy has now been sent down.

Not a miss yet. We still own his rights. He appears to be extremely talented. What he did was wrong, but not approaching something like rape. Ever heard of being scared straight?

The front office had to have known that this was possible, but based upon their evaluation of his true character and talent they must have felt it was a cheap gamble ... which may still pay off.

I don't care what in the heck he is. This guy is a disgusting individual. Take off your black and gold glasses and imagine if this were your daughter. Read this below and tell me this is okay. Are you aware that he was set for trial for sexual assault in the third degree? That's 10 years in prison in Wyoming. Are you sure you really want a guy like this on our team?

“I feel like he’s not really getting a punishment,” one victim, D.H., said. “I just feel like there should be more that can be done to show that this is not OK.”

The other victim, identified as A.A., told the judge Thursday that the molestation by Granderson left her “empty, depressed and lost.”

The victims stem from an incident when A.A. and D.H. slept at Granderson’s apartment the night after the final UW football game of 2018.

Both said they were awoken to Granderson molesting them.

“I have never been so terrified in my life,” D.H. said through tears Thursday morning. “I sat there and looked for my keys because they had pepper spray on them, but they were nowhere to be found.”

The victims, both student-athletes at UW, expressed frustration at how the university handled the allegations against Granderson.

A.A. said she felt “rejected by the administration of the university” and said university leaders initially treated Granderson “like he was the victim.”

“I was constantly getting bullied by members of the football team, all of whom thought it was OK to call me a ‘ho’ and ‘slut’ to my face,” she said.

And how about one of the disgusting Coaches for Wyoming who wrote this letter: Before sentencing, Granderson’s attorney, Megan Overmann Goetz, read a statement from one of Granderson’s coaches, who expressed support for Granderson and said he was “the type of young man that a coach dreams of being able to work with.”

I'm quite sure if I went to this coach's house and sexually assaulted his daughter or wife, he'd say something quite different.

Let me add: this is no different than the rapist Jameis Winston getting into the NFL after he raped the women in college.

All the idiot Florida State fans called the women whores, etc. Blaming them for even though he raped them.

We make too many excuses for people's behavior, especially football stars.

I'd say most people would say if he did this to their daughter, they'd want to kill him. I know I would.

Not a big fan of classless, disrespectful trash on the team.

You completely lost me with this post.

I hope they take his "rights" and shred them. Let the Cowboys take him.

Why not try and sign Darren Sharper whilst we are at it?

His true character is a criminal, no more needs to be said.
