Multiple New Orleans Saints players say that workers at Atlanta’s airport egged their team bus as they arrived from New Orleans for their upcoming game on Thursday night, according to WWL-TV.
Jimmy Graham was among the players, including Chase Daniel and Will Herring, who tweeted about the incident.

A team source confirms that eggs were hurled at the bus.
The Saints beat the Falcons on Nov. 11th, 31-27. Scott Shanle called them “our little brothers” in an interview with Yahoo!Sports and called their pregame behavior at the Superdome “classless.”
Atlanta’s Roddy White fired back to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, saying “I don’t like nothing about the Saints. The colors. The city. Nothing. But they’ve got some good food, though. Other than the food, nothing.”
