Sixty raw field bush will remain in New Orleans at the saints match the falcons' offer sheet for the restricted free agent. Sideline reporter Kristian garic why it was important for the franchise to keep bush in black and gold.

Sport by Tony to -- -- -- on Steve -- with you on your radio on this Tuesday that there -- -- not Monday and down and talking about LSU we're looking at you know pro day coming up this week. But also leaving questions after the spring game of who's gonna quarterback this team you know it's it pretty clear. After the outback ball like okay well this guy and comes in in the Arkansas game wins the game wins the Outback Bowl thing you know they got a quarterback. Lunging. Maybe not there's a -- controversy quarterback after the spring game yet -- Jennings was thought to be the guy like you said he had that big come from back from behind victory in the final seconds over Arkansas. Okay showing that very impressive but still end up winning the global game. But this kid Brandon Harris has come in and really looked sharp struggled early on but the knew it was just come more accurate throws then. And Jennings had in the game because. You saw Jennings makes some very who advised throws had two picks returned for touchdowns again and those -- two linebackers. Just imagine what's gonna happen. In the SEC against quarterbacks like from Alabama so it was kind of scary to see that we're Jennings. Completed more passes and was dealt with a more accurate passer in the game and has. Show showed more promise score four touchdowns on the day though parents are Jennings if you were picking right now who would you start at corner. It's it's tough but I would go to true freshman just because you've looked. More -- a lot more sharper in his first outing. That I got to see him -- it was just the first practice that we were able to see. Tiger is still have a lot more time to go but right now if I got to push the button and go with Brendan Harris. Must land -- Brandon Harris until the spring game. Right. Allison Jennings has been the anointed one who took -- murders plays after -- -- went down. I will only get you backing anti feminist slant to that question you last do you think the saints. Should pick up met burger and if not where do you think he goes -- what round anyway.

The deal all right talking -- But now live -- -- the Eyewitness -- forecasts are right Margaret text messages sports and more after those guys are there read a text message today 7870. We were giving an update on the chicken boxing bill the bill that was outlawed chicken boxing in the Louisiana passing the senate very easily and moving house. -- accidents that what about all the animals fighting and killing and eating each other out in the wild maybe we should introduce a bill to stop all animal violence.

It is Steve -- congratulations by the -- surviving Monday and welcome -- -- yes indeed it feels good because I mean Monday it was a rough day yesterday for whatever reason. You mean you're surprised that we can here on Tuesday congratulations. Yes good morning everyone Shabazz Napier turned in another all court masterpiece. Live Connecticut to a sixty to 54 win over Kentucky's freshman. And brought home a championship hardly. Anyone -- coming. -- -- -- -- -- Maker led the Huskies with 22 points six rebounds three assists and three steals. He's among three seniors who were part of Connecticut's 2011. Title the trio stayed after Coach Jim Calhoun retirement. Even when the Huskies weren't eligible for the NCAA tournament last season. It's a dream match up in tonight's NCAA women's title game the unbeaten Connecticut Huskies try to finish their fortieth victory. When they take on 37 and a Notre Dame and the first women's championship pitting two unbeaten teams. UConn UConn will go for a double title for the first time since they did it back in 2004. The saints didn't let restricted free agent rob feel bush walked with land as the team that's the falcons' offer sheet sideline reporter Kristian garic on the move. Although he had -- opportunities started Atlanta he's embracing the role that he'll have honesty defense behind Derrick bird in Geneva talent and I both Google closes its official told me that he let the process is over and -- ready to help the states when possible. Joel look -- passed Jeff Gordon on the final lap to win the rain delayed duck commander 500 Sprint Cup this was the seventh breakthrough race of the season. And the -- is the seventh different winner. NASCAR points leader Dale Earnhardt junior left after a wreck and wound up with its first last place finish in seven seasons. And his efforts have now lost four straight -- 64 to Oklahoma City. -- on sports talk a look ahead to LSU's pro -- which tiger will be the first all the draft board and who was the most NFL ready. Plus would you like to say the draft -- met burger to understudy Drew Brees with -- early morning look at sports science. You've -- advisor to three -- on Ron Amadon with you on your radio so all those number 25 bush -- people had a round after Reggie last. And kept around for Raphael bush they can keep a little longer the saints are keeping Raphael bush you think it was a good idea for them to match. The golfer from Atlanta and you think it's a good thing that he sang a member of the saints defensive backfield. Absolutely a great move by the states and a surprise they actually were able to do so I wanna know -- Mickey Loomis is finding the money he is a master. But yeah -- we saw rough you'll bush. Really excel in Rob -- system last year. And with a mix of now Jarrius bird. Along with Kenny the car overall feel bush or mostly what this new guy and Bob ball has to offer. They have a pretty deep we have a lot of depth at safety plus with the new the quarterbacks. They have are in position right now adding Champ Bailey. You have to be excited for what the saints' secondary looks like in the defense might actually be stronger than the offense it's crazy that's. Baghdad be just fine because the pretty darn good offence that met burger which you take an amendment drafted yet their candidate. Column of interest to see what he's gonna do in his pro day recovery from an ACL injury but. Before the injury he looked to be on his way to becoming a first round draft pick. What Cam Cameron do with him was pretty amazing the different it is junior to senior year so I would definitely draft met burger and a third or fourth round this year. Steve Geller will -- to come back with more sports in about fifteen minutes John WWL a look at your forecast is changing dramatically throughout the day today club details business. 555 forecast time. That's gone over the eyewitness is forecast senate. For your Tuesday afternoon expect some more scattered showers and storms that they should be -- last round -- respect enough for some nice weather after that keep the umbrellas handy utility 40% chance. And it's at windy city today too with highs around seventy. It's night clearing skies windy and turning cooler 46 north of the lake and 52 on the south sort. Then tomorrow sunny and milder with a high of seventy and Thursday sunny and a high of 76. From the Eyewitness News forecast center meteorologist -- about itself. 56 degrees cloudy skies at the airport in Canada's northwest just at five miles an hour today by a right now pardon me but later today around noon and expect that rain a movement in those winds do pick up dramatically you heard more about now earlier issue and officials are alert. 51 degrees partly cloudy in -- -- doctors and for the next four hours of fun it -- -- what you got going around. Well David has some pretty important to -- at 8 -- that's elegance they -- during the -- important thing really important that's all -- -- retired about this poll which is David -- and Mitch Landrieu and a statistical tie to be the next governor of Louisiana I think an interesting question. Is which one would you vote for. Or against. The other question is. Is Andrew gonna run. Yet indicated the well but better has so interesting well -- after write that down it is a good question but that I'm and we got to poll saying he -- EE could potentially -- -- very good candidate Andrew. Mighty run Jordan. Been a great question. I don't -- talk about legislation to make a yellow lights all the same time. Length as we will ease traffic cameras likely to be a good idea in the same like everywhere million. Do you think that there would be some rules or regulations as an organization standardize that. And one other question when you see yellow light media -- speed up or stuff you know likes Darman said. Green means go red means stop yellow means go very fact a year ago and I physics traffic camera there that is recording your speed because then you might get a speeding ticket right army's next.
