NFL via Getty Images(NEW ORLEANS) — Some more bad news for the New Orleans Saints. 

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Louisiana notified the Saints that their general manager Mickey Loomis had an electronic device in his Superdome suite that had been secretly re-wired to enable him to eavesdrop on the visiting coaching staff for nearly three NFL seasons, according to ESPN’s Outside the Lines.

“There was a switch, and the switch accessed offense and defense,” a source familiar with the Saints game-day operations told Outside the Lines. “When Randy (Mueller) was there, it was the Saints offense or defense, and when Mickey was there it changed over so it was the visiting offense or defense.”

Randy Mueller was the Saints former general manager before Loomis took over.  NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league was unaware of the allegations.
