The Latest Orleans Saints seemingly dodged disaster with the NFL declining to suspend all-world running back Alvin Kamara for his arrest earlier this yr. Unfortunately, plainly one other member of the Saints just got into some trouble with the law.
Saints insider Nick Underhill reported that Saints safety Marcus Maye was arrested this morning. He has been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm. If those charges are accurate, he potentially faces as much as 10 years in prison.
In line with TMZ, Maye stays in Louisiana’s Jefferson Parish Correctional Center and has not yet been released. The precise allegations against Maye are unclear.
As you may imagine, Saints fans are nearly in tears after their prized safety was arrested and potentially faces a big suspension or worse:
Marcus Maye was a second-round pick by the Latest York Jets in 2017 and quickly emerged as considered one of the league’s top free safeties. But a torn Achilles he suffered throughout the 2021 season together with a desire to go away Latest York led to Maye hitting free agency after the season.
Maye quickly signed with the Latest Orleans Saints on a three-year, $28.5 million contract. The team was so confident in Maye that they traded starting safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson to the Eagles yesterday.
Now with Maye’s status uncertain, the Saints could have to scramble to work out who will star for Week 1 if he is not available to play.
Will Marcus Maye miss any time for the Saints this yr?
