According to sources a former quarterback of the Saints, Adrian McPherson, is suing the Tennessee Titans due to the mascot hitting him with a golf cart.
The civil suit was stated to have been filed on Friday in Davidson County Circuit Court. The former quarterback Adrian McPherson is seeking $5 million in damages for negligence and $15 million for punitive damages.
The accident allegedly occured during a warm up on a field on August 12 when the Titans’ mascot T-Rac (Pete Nelson) hit him with the golf cart while throwing items into the stands. Adrian McPherson received a deep bruise in his right knee which caused him to miss the rest of the games. On September 2nd, Adrian McPherson was cut from the Saints and was later signed on with the Austin Wranglers in November. Andrian McPherson blames the mascot for ending his season.
As a reminder the NFL let all teams know that their mascot must remain outside of a six-foot boundary around the fields. The Titans did not get sanctioned for the incident.
