08:03 AM ET 06.07 | They played a version of the Family Feud Wednesday in New Orleans. [The Saints] had their first skirmish of minicamp Wednesday after quarterback Chase Daniel took exception to linebacker Curtis Lofton getting too close during practice. During team drills, Lofton blitzed and would have sacked Daniel on the play. But it became apparent, Daniel wanted the linebacker to stay clear during the non-contact drill. After the play, Daniel flipped the ball in Lofton's direction with some choice words. Lofton took issue to the gesture, and before long Saints right guard Jahri Evans came to Daniel's defense, setting off a skirmish among several offensive and defensive players.

After the near sack, Lofton was heard saying, "Where's my money? How much was that worth?"

I guess Lofton didn't realize the "payments" are only valid for the opposing team QBs.

Haha!!

I just noticed the pic... "Led by Chase Daniels".

If he can't handle a linebacker getting a little too close to him, maybe this football thing won't work out for him.

Morning Mangler.

Not good when the OL defends the LB rather than the QB.

There's even a 'bounty' out on their own?

June 7, 2012  09:18 AM ET

Better get Brees signed and fix this...

This was just a little Family Team building

The secret message is "Chase Daniel." And as of right now, he's the starter.

If ever the people of New Orleans have a reason to say "Who dat?" this is it.

Nice one Debbie, the sting of that one may last longer than Katrina.

OK, time to put them all in a FEMA trailer and make them stay there until they can play nice.
