Atlanta airport workers egg New Orleans Saints' bus, players say

The New Orleans Saints received a warm welcome from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport workers yesterday. The NFL squad traveled to Atlanta last night for tonight's game against the Falcons, and according to several players, some airport employees egged the team's bus on the tarmac.

Backup quarterback Chase Daniel first tweeted about the egg bombardment:

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham and linebacker Will Herring also chimed in:

The Saints handed the Falcons their only loss of the season earlier this month. Atlanta players reportedly messed with several opposing players during that game's pregame warm-up routines, which Saints linebacker Scott Shanle called "disrespectful and classless."

We've reached out to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and the New Orleans Saints for more information. If any one of them rise up with a comment on what some are referring to as EggGate, we'll post an update.

UPDATE, 12:47 p.m.: An airport representative confirmed with 11 Alive that egging happened, and said that Atlanta Police will provide additional security for the Saints' flight back to New Orleans.
