Charles Grant Indicted

By Staff

DE Charles Grant has been indicted for involuntary manslaughter stemming from the incident Superbowl weekend in Georgia.

"Grant, who was stabbed in the neck during the fracas, was charged by an Early County grand jury that also charged Laquient Macklin with felony murder and feticide in the shooting death of Korynda Reed, 23. Reed died after being taken to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center in Dothan, after the fight early Feb. 3."

Wow. I have always been happy that the Saints haven’t had an off-the-field incident such as this one in recent memory. Now this comes up. Wasn’t Charles the victim? It’s too early to come to conclusions but Grant signed a 7-year $63 million contract last offseason and that should be in jeapordy if anything comes out of these charges. His played has slipped the past few seasons and is overpaid which might get him cut sooner rather than later. He is a fan favorite and a leader on the defense but manslaughter? That just does not sound good. That Bobby McCray signing has not looked better.
