A troupe of Rob Ryans are taking over Mardi Gras

Published Add your comment

Mardi Gras celebrations are in full swing in New Orleans this week.

And New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is getting into party mood too, leading the Krewe of Argus Mardi Gras Parade as General Marshall.

But it seems that there are some rogue Ryan's marauding the streets of NOLA this week.

As spotted by Fox Sports, a "herd' of Rob Ryan lookalikes have been seen throughout the celebrations alongside the usual beads, and pageantry that is Mardi Gras.

All of them dressed in matching chinos, white Saints sweaters, and Ryan's signature silver goatee and long hair under a Saints baseball cap - check them out here.

Ryan himself was seen recognising the achievements of another Saints man during his role on Tuesday.

The 51-year old was sporting a Drew Brees jersey while standing atop his custom-made float as it made it's way through the city streets.

The Saints have a tradition of getting involved in the festivities, with both Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton having led various parades in the past.
