The New Orleans Saints officially reported to Metairie on Thursday as they hold their first practice of the 2013 training camp Friday morning.
One thing is for certain as the Saints enter the 2013 training camp. Sean Payton is back. That was no more evident as Payton said he will handle most of the offensive play calls this season. Certainly it's something I enjoy doing. I will rely on Pete, Joe and the other coaches on offense. I will be involved with that part of it.” said Payton.
“I had Sean Payton in my ear five years previous to this. I am very familiar with that voice and those instructions as well.” said Drew Brees.
That's just one of the ways the Saints will feel Payton's presence. One of the biggest differences is just having him in the building as General Manager Mickey Loomis explained.
“I think we make a lot of decisions together. We bounce a lot of things off each other. That was a big deal last season. That is the biggest thing now is that we can talk.” said Loomis.
Saints opening practice Friday morning starting at 8:50 a.m. Practice is open to the public at Saints training camp
