NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) – NFL players are just like everyone else – they like to share their lives on social media.
But according to Saints Head Coach Sean Payton, inside the locker room before a game should be off limits.
He doesn’t want players sharing too much in the run up to the games, and he has a plan to stop it.
The coach appeared on a national radio show and said he plans to install social media blockers in the Saints locker room.
He called it a “simple scrambler” that would block social media use two hours before a game.
Payton said he wants his players focused during that time. He notices players getting antsy for their phones when they haven’t had a break in a while.
