|Chesney playing football?|
I wonder if Sean Payton still has Kenny Chesney's phone number. Sounds like he may be needing some replacement players sometime soon.
Chesney signed a one-day contract in 2007. The Saints actually held a press conference at the Cincinnati Bengals stadium to announce the signing day before their preseason contest with the Bengals.
Payton mentioned that Chesney had a size seven shoe, which was the most difficult part of getting equipment. He got the No. 7 jersey to go with his high school number.
Saint assistant coach Joe Vitt called it a dog-and-pony show.
Payton said Vitt was pouting and Chesney was grinning all during the practice.
Chesney did all the drills and at the end of practice Payton said Chesney would be on the receiving end of a punt. He told the team if Chesney caught the ball, the team would have the next Monday off in New Orleans. This was before a Thursday game against Kansas City.
