Hopefully when the New Orleans Saints report for training camp, #9 is out there running the first team. If he is out there, then he'll need to report to Saints headquarters in Metairie on July 24th. That's the day players are required to report for physicals and conditioning tests with practice beginning July 26th.

The Saints get things started early as they play in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio on August 5th. After that they will spend the next  four days in New England, concluding with their preseason game against the Patriots on August 9th.

Practices in which admission is free and open to the public will run from 4pm to 6:45pm. The last practice of camp is August 16th.

The schedule also includes a break the weekend of August 10-12.
