Today was the the team’s final open practice of training camp, and it was a hot one in Metairie! The Saints will go through a walkthrough tomorrow morning at the indoor facility. Practice was livened up when around 10:30 a plane towing a banner was spotted circling the practice facility in Metairie. The banner in tow read “FREE PAYTON” and got a reaction from fans and players. Safety Roman Harper joked with fans that he was responsible for the air-born message.
