Organized team activities concluded last week and now minicamp just wrapped up for the Saints. Coach Sean Payton must have liked what he saw from his team this week because he cut Thursdays session short letting players off an hour early.The Cajun Cannon Bobby Hebert felt that the defense came out on top the final day and hes been impressed with a player whos season ended early a year ago after suffering an ankle injury,I thought the defense had the edge making plays, said Hebert. Patrick Robinson getting an interception twodays in a row is a good sign he is back from injury. Id be surprised if PJ Williams beats out P-Rob to be that nickel cornerback, but the more depth the more competition.If you want to know about running backs or really anything football, Deuce McAllister is a master at breaking things down. He is the franchises all-time leading rusher and has an impressive football IQ that really shines during Saints broadcasts. Mark Ingram is no longer with the team, but Latavious Murray was signed to be that 2 guy behind star Alvin Kamara. Who will be the Black & Golds 3rd option in the backfield though Last season it was Dwayne Washington, but there are a number of players competing for that role like Devine Ozigbo, Javorius Allen and Matthew Dayes.Can they pick up a blitz questioned Deuce. That is critical for any guy thats going to be in that role. If you are going to be the 3rd tail back on this squad, youve got to show that you can pick up the blitz.Check out more from the Cajun Cannon & Deuce below:functiond, s, id var js, fjs d.getElementsByTagNames0 if d.getElementByIdid return js d.createElements js.id id js.src //connect.facebook.net/enUS/sdk.jsxfbml1&versionv2.3 fjs.parentNode.insertBeforejs, fjsdocument, script, facebook-jssdk Categories: Sports NFL Local News Football Saints Tags: New Orleans Saints NFL Bobby Hebert Deuce McAllister Comments

Payton had high praise for Kamara after practice today.It starts with some of the stuff he does extremely well now that still sells, meaning that it is still really, really good. Hes got the ability to return punts, return kicks, Payton said.His flexibility in the passing game and in the running game allows you, Id say moreso your game-week preparation relative to the team you are playing. When we drafted him, it starts with he has real, real, exceptionally high football IQ, so he can get bored with it.While evaluating Kamara may be easy -- hes good -- its not as simple when looking at the 90 players invited to camp. Payton said it will take through the seasons start for him to really know what his team is capable of this season.Honestly, I dont know that you know until you start the first quarter pole of season. Certainly you feel the experience and the competitive nature of guys. Were trained as coaches to prepare in a way and prepare the players in a way where each week where, theres 31 others trained. And so its hard to measure this invisible race thats taken place this early where everyone else is at.Kamara is one of the many returning players who will have to deal with lingering question about how the Saints will respond to the disastrous finish to the 2018-19 season, when the NOLA No-Call derailed a possible Super Bowl season. Payton said it will be important for each player to try and find a way to most past that moment, and focus on this season.That probably would vary per player, but I dont think its something were discussing. Right now our focus is moving forward and it has not been something that has been a topic of motivation. Its still about putting yourself in a position to get back. Every team at this time of the year is talking about the postseason and the opportunity to put a good season together and play in the postseason. It starts with trying to win your division first. I would say for most, Im sure that thats in the rearview mirror.The Saints now have over a month off before returning for training camp in late July.Watch Paytons full post-camp comments in the video below.functiond, s, id var js, fjs d.getElementsByTagNames0 if d.getElementByIdid return js d.createElements js.id id js.src //connect.facebook.net/enUS/sdk.jsxfbml1&versionv2.3 fjs.parentNode.insertBeforejs, fjsdocument, script, facebook-jssdk Categories: Sports NFL Saints Tags: Sean Payton alvin kamara Saints New Orleans Saints minicamp NFL Comments

Saints wrap up minicamp with shortened session

Saints wrap up minicamp with shortened session Steve Geller June 13, 2019 Steve Geller functione,tift.ymvoid 0t.ymvar me.createElementscriptm.typetext/javascript,m.async0,m.src//static.yieldmo.com/ym.m5.js,e.getElementsByTagNamehead0e.getElementsByTagNamebody0.appendChildmelse t.ym instanceof Stringvoid 0t.ym.chkPlst.ym.chkPlsdocument,windowThe last day of minicamp was a short session for the Saints. Coach Sean Payton ended the practice an hour early. The defense seemed to win the day. Some standout plays were corner Marshon Lattimore making a nice pass break up covering Michael Thomas, and CB Patrick Robinson had an interception off Teddy Bridgewater. It was PRobs 2nd straight day with a pick.One big question for the Black and Gold heading into the 2019 season is will they be able to get over getting robbed in the NFC championship game against the Rams. Coach Sean Payton is confident that his team is locked in in the road ahead not the one theyve already traveled.Right now our focus is forward and it has not been something that has been a topic of motivation. Its still about putting yourself in a position to get back. Every team at this time of the year is talking about the postseason and the opportunity to put a good season together and play in the postseason. It starts with trying to win your division first. I would say for most, Im sure that thats in the rearview mirror.The Black & Gold have been breaking in a new center this offseason after the steady and reliable Max Under retired. The Saints drafted Texas A&Ms Erik McCoy and while its tough to evaluate the big boys up front in non-padded practices, Coach Payton has been pleased with their 2nd round draft pick.Hes exceptionally smart, boasted Payton. He picks things up well. Hes a strong player. So, some of that relative to your strength in what were doing in these drills maybe you dont get to see as much but just the under center snaps that may have occurred more in this offseason than he was used to, in college, that type of thing. Im anxious to see him as we get started and hes someone thats picked things up very well.There were two botched center/QB exchanges in Wednesdays practice which Payton said will get cleaned up. Drew Brees feels its just part of the learning process for McCoy.We threw him in the fire, I think thats the only way you really get better and youve got to stretch yourself a little bit and put yourself in those uncomfortable situations. I think all thats going to do isAn uncomfortable situation for Brees is a lawsuit that he is going through in California versus a jeweler he claims defrauded him of millions of dollars.Its been very stressful and its ongoing, but well get through it.Brees was forced to miss time at last weeks organized team activities and was absent for the first day of minicamp on TuesdayObviously, Im the quarterback of his football team and I want to be with the team, but unfortunately there were things that were a bit out of our control that we had to take care of. So take care of that and take life as it comes.Hopefully, things can get cleared up soon to ease some of Brees off the field tension. Training camp is about 6 weeks away.
