Saints Rookie DE Carl Granderson Sentenced to Six Months for Sexual Battery Case

Saints rookie defensive end Carl Granderson was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading no contest to his pending sexual battery case according to Davis Potter of CS Tribune.

The Saints knew about the case when they signed Granderson as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming in April. Coach Sean Payton claimed the team was “real comfortable” with everything it knew about the case but we suspect Granderson’s roster spot is in serious jeopardy in light of the jail sentence.

Granderson was a three-year starter on the Cowboys’ defensive front but his sack production dipped from 9.5 as a junior to 3.0 as a senior, he fell from first- to second-team All-Mountain West, and he underwhelmed at the NFL Scouting Combine in February.
