Draft Scout Ryan Griffin News
09/06/15 - QB Ryan Griffin was claimed by Tampa Bay on waivers from New Orleans.
06/17/15 - QB Ryan Griffin, who is vying with Luke McCown and rookie Garrett Grayson for the Saints' backup spot behind Drew Brees, was attacked with a champagne bottle at a New Orleans bar in the early-morning hours of June 7.
Griffin, who did not participate in at least one OTA practice last week, met with the media after Tuesday's minicamp practice -- one day after the news broke of the altercation.
A former Tulane standout, Griffin needed 50 stitches to close a wound to his upper forehead and his nose that he received as a result of the incident at Apres Lounge, a Central Business District bar.
"I just wanted you guys to see my face," Griffin said after removing his cap to reveal a faint scare on his forehead and nose. "Everything looks fine. My plastic surgeon must have gone to Tulane. They did a great job."
Griffin was struck with the bottle after bumping into some men at the bar. Justin Reese, Griffin's lawyer, said his client was an innocent bystander and a victim of assault and battery. They said the incident is still under investigation by the New Orleans Police Department.
"It was an unfortunate situation that happened and I'm trying to get it handled quickly and easily," Griffin said. "As soon as it happened, I notified the Saints and have been telling them anything and everything that's happened so far.
"My attorney (Reese) is handling all the legal matters and we are both cooperating fully with law enforcement," he added. "My main focus right now is football, and doing whatever I can to help this team and get better and get ready for training camp."
