Coming up here. Probably -- living off it's fair game. Everybody job. I feel your highs and -- -- toward this Friday I hit the hell you. Since. Still a few weeks ago and I've been working every day. I -- the first big weekend about a driver that won his second straight -- and Marty grounded fit or Fat Tuesday. Or death Wednesday. I'm just so desperate. To lay down and you know there's no reason I have to get up again. For at least. Six now with a cup but -- it -- But of course. We spring forward. Tomorrow night. I lose an hour of the -- you know I solve that problem. I don't spring Ford until Sunday morning differently got. I guess that it's just one -- that. -- But it changes everything. When -- when I come to work. Monday mornings when the clock says 5 AM. It'll actually be foray yet. In terms of we had a problem for the plot to get up an hour earlier Monday morning. And it's gonna take some getting used to adjust to and we darker in the so we're gonna get more life -- No you don't set your clocks ahead before you go to bed Saturday night sort of ahead after you wake up on any Houston of going to -- an hour early hours -- I. Take a little guy -- Sunday that he had a trying -- -- so I think it's exhausting seasons all the sweet and hourly. A lot of trouble on time. Are so as we -- enjoy the fact that it's Friday. We have a serious business talk about here. You have spoken out -- with our legal analyst at four about what's happening today in Los Angeles where former saints safety Pro Bowl. Defensive back Darren Sharper. And it essentially what does the judge in Los Angeles have to decide today when sharper appears in court. Today gonna decide number one it. -- to some what did new bond is set for sharper -- Currently for and a million dollars bond well advocacy he was free of a million dollars bond whenever PD issued or arrest warrant. He got taken back into custody he's been in jail since that size -- he has been in jail for a week. Right and he's being held without bond more than a week -- it was a week ago yesterday. -- being held without bond after new Orleans police files -- rest warrant for him on two charges of rape. So he's his mind right now is theoretically million dollars but he's being held on the warrant -- -- new war on to the judge must decide if he must remain in jail or you can post bail and go for -- -- chick. -- says it's likely now that the Los -- prosecute tutors and say look you know he's got more charges pending against him in New Orleans early this arrest for it hasn't officially been charged by the DA's office here. But he's got this arrest warrant. There's still these other jurisdictions that are investigating and we believe he's an even bigger flight risk. We are gonna ask for ten million dollar bond or perhaps we are gonna ask that you denied bond. And keep sharper in jail so that could happen and they want ten million dollars on the original charges just in Angeles but the judge said no -- million would suffice. And it was opposed yeah prosecutor now likely argue your honor this should. Indicate to use more bonds needed and then the second question is where will he be tried Forrest Brian. Yeah one of assuming charges are coming here in New Orleans from the DA's office that it becomes a question of OK who get some first. And forays said you'd typically. Who charged him first will be further along in the -- it. Try him first he did mention that the charges here are actually more serious because here aggravated rape carries a possible life prison sentence. -- judges decide if he can go free on any amount of money. Pending trial and if he should be extradited to New Orleans to face charges here or -- -- Los Angeles and face charges that.

ESPN's reporting that the states are considering trading Pierre Thomas Lance Moore and Darren Sproles. While these names have been a fixture on the team Jamie dukes of the NFL network is not shocked.

More scheduled to count five point one million dollars against the cap Thomas is owed two point nine million and Sproles is -- 3.4 million. The Denver Broncos have released cornerback Champ Bailey after ten seasons with the team. His released was also a cost cutting move the twelve time pro -- scheduled to make around ten million next season. Bailey's 52 interceptions are the most among active quarterbacks. South pull -- tocchet earned his third win of the season. As LSU baseball left -- -- -- with an 821 victory over Northwestern State is I want to try to -- fastball on the outside it's. Tocchet were five innings allowing one run of and five hits with two walks and four strikeouts the tigers are now eleven and two -- host Purdue this weekend.

Seven -- the pelicans host the Milwaukee Bucks on the flagship 1053 WWL that then I'd Steve Geller and that your early morning look at sport like. In minutes after 5 AM the early edition of WWL first is all right I'm giving you the general -- past congratulations. You're now Mickey Loomis. And you've got to negotiate a contract with Jimmy Graham and try to lock him up long term maybe. Or get 21 round draft picks form somebody else wants him that badly. And oh by the way you've got to decide what to do about Pierre Thomas. There and Sproles. And Lance Moore three fan favorites over the years who are set to earn big paychecks next year. And whose production is in May be now what used to be. Coincidentally I think at least two of those guys have the same -- as -- Ingraham on -- of that has anything to do with this today and could be. Way of the saints telling Jimmy Graham's agent and you play hardball hope it will play hardball. And you wanna help when he clients that they would you do about your other so -- do with the how that all pans out but you're now the general manager. Who stated I'm tried to work out something we're making keep Pierre Thomas -- a -- -- obviously trying to work -- a deal. To see if anyone to take a paid deduction to stay with the team read negotiate right and if I have to get rid of someone out of those three I'm -- part ways Lance Moore. We talk a little bit about yesterday just because Kenny stills has now really emerged into the saints number two wide receiver role. And for him to be making five point nine million dollars as a third or fourth option is just not worth it. And we have to get rid of its like again. Our goal with Roger -- we have a defensive tackle just because the Phoenix to Charlotte when he apparently it's not enrolled more. Dominant. As painful as it would be to me I would part ways with Pierre Thomas of the Border Patrol this because Darren Sproles -- more important to Drew Brees in the passing game. We on the scene -- more than -- he has that -- Of a safety now when no one else is open right. Man you get in the bombing it makes them happen what it's a huge hit though is the instinct ability to run the screen pass as Pierre Thomas is probably the best in the NFL. And the rest of them. NASA it. Thank you -- -- it's worth -- -- to do it again and point five minutes here on Debbie WL am adamant that I wanna cut you. So they graduate them. And I get ready to spring forward folks.

Where is here providers will just what the market decide what speed we want and what will really pay for however I exploding -- -- lemmings are happy enough with that that we keep paying for it. They see no reason to give us more. Could have some good news yeah. Interest only hires people talk about how high a speed provides they provide is for it. But I area and Hungary is provide a -- feet -- with the market won't.

If I view this very technology as I always forget that these stuff like that. If it's funny I sit here all morning until people do it on Friday morning by Saturday night I'll forget details. Passports done I can't forget about that is just an identity and it tells me that the state sports for Steve Geller on a Friday morning thanks David good. Morning everyone the saints are reportedly exploring the possibility. Of trading three notable names on offense. ESPN's saying that Pierre Thomas -- smaller and Darren Sproles are all on the block. NFL network analyst Jamie Dukes was a little surprised -- Sproles is name but totally understands why the romance with layups maybe over. That's more basically just disappeared. Over the last season soul what value is if they we'll put somebody younger fresher. I think. Cash strapped saints are trying to find several million dollars to trim off the salary cap. The one son Jimmy Graham to free agents and upcoming draft picks to Denver Broncos have released Champ Bailey after ten seasons with the team. It was a cost cutting move with the twelve time Pro Bowl quarterback scheduled to make around ten million dollars next season. Broncos boss John Elway called the decision quote difficult. Freshman -- tocchet earned his third win in three starts as he led LSU to an 821 victory over Northwestern State. -- lines and delivers -- intimacy struck him out on three pitches the south -- plus five innings of one run ball while striking out four. The tigers now host Purdue for a three game series this weekend. First pitch for game one and Alex box stadium is that said it. LSU basketball snapped a seven game road losing streak beating Vanderbilt 57 the 51. Forward Johnnie -- the third carry the tigers scoring 25 points with ten rebounds. And rain played Havoc with the first round of the Cadillac championship at Doral in Florida. Harris English was one of the few golfers the complete eighteen holes as he took the overnight lead at three under par. Tiger Woods didn't make a birdie but seemed to have no back problems during -- ten holes woods is five shots out of delete. Today F four on sports talk let's play saint survivor who's safe and who gets voted off the volume. At seven here's the pelicans host the Milwaukee Bucks on the flagship. 1053. WWL. Am -- early morning look at sports and I'm Steve Geller I'm Dave kind mandates for Iraq. A day as we all look forward to springing and head turning the clocks ahead one hour -- go to bed Saturday night officially happens at 2 AM Sunday. That's when you're supposed to turn until 3 AM writes I got that dates to adjust at least before Monday. -- but remember when you get a Monday morning it'll be brilliant hour earlier than when he got up today thanks. But again more sunlight in the afternoon night there were playing saints survivor and I had a text message to -- 7870. Moderate one more time in the game you're reaction here and I can find that thing by by Lance. Why are Pierre. France Telecom and Ingram can go to. Jeremy hill -- 27 will the bruising LSU running back with a checkered past still be on the board when the saints take at number 27. Absolutely even with his off the field issues I believe -- would be a second round draft -- so he should he will be on the board at number 27 but I don't. See this thing's going in that direction at all that waste Olympic that are. Yet just for the fact there's too many other more important needs on this team like cornerback. And also I would say defensive end outside linebacker they need some help there. Some have the -- projected to be taking an offensive linemen that they have been mentors we've done that. In the past now that I got -- they litigate guys in the later rounds and it went around there. Undrafted pre selected that with the corner defensive end outside linebacker or even a wide receiver if I'm hoping O'Dell Beckham junior still around. After the wide receiver needs and he can also be kick returner. Thanks Steve talk to you and about fifteen minutes more sports John WWL he's a kick returner and that means there and all of that. 555 now your weekend forecast on this Friday morning. Right after that it's your weekend forecasted to get one on this. -- today 61 and then dropping into the forties tonight we'll see mid forties north of the lake and upper forties on the South Shore.
