ATLANTA (USA TODAY) -- It's not the welcome you'd expect.
Hartsfield-Jackson Airpoirt officials confirm some airline workers did in fact throw eggs at the bus of the New Orleans Saints team when they arrived in Atlanta last night.
Saints workers tweeted the incident.
Backup quarterback Chase Daniel was the first Saints player to tweet about it: "Wow, as we're boarding buses on the Tarmac @ Atlanta airport, we start getting eggs thrown @ us by airport workers! Guess they do hate us!"
Tight end Jimmy Graham chimed in shortly after. "Bus just got egged after landing in ATL by the ramp workers," Graham wrote on Twitter. Classy! 'RISE Up' smh."
Airport and airline officials are investigating and Atlanta Police will help provide security when the Saints depart.
The Saints are the only team to have beaten the Falcons this season.
