The Saints wrapped up their three-day minicamp on Thursday with one final practice, which did not disappoint.

By John Hendrix- Saints News Network | SI

The Saints closed out their three-day minicamp on Thursday with another interesting practice that we got to watch. The final one brought more good things from Klint Kubiak's offense as well as some sparks to the table. Here's everything that went down from my notes and observations.

ATTENDANCE​

Thursday's practice saw mostly the same when it comes to attendance, but with one very noticeable absence in Alvin Kamara. Those who were not spotted during the session included Alontae Taylor (oblique), Ryan Ramczyk (knee), Juwan Johnson (foot), Tommy Hudson, Tanoh Kpassagnon (Achilles), Jack Heflin and Chase Young. Johnson will miss some time. Allen said Johnson’s foot was bothering him and said he’s not exactly sure how it happened, but it developed in the offseason. Tryout players Jordan Smith and Russell Gage were also not in attendance. We saw Nephi Sewell out there some with the linebackers today, but he was not in uniform.

THE KAMARA SITUATION: He was at the facility early in the morning and participated in walkthroughs, but was not on the field for practice. Reports have emerged that it's contract related, and Dennis Allen has yet to speak with him and said that it would be unfair to make any statements on things without talking to Kamara when asked if his absence today was excused or not. We'll keep an eye out on this one for sure. ...

Updated Saints 53-man roster predictions after OTAs, minicamp

We’re heading off into the desert after the New Orleans Saints wrapped up their mandatory minicamp this week; there won’t be much activity in the weeks ahead until training camp begins on July 24. So what have we learned at organized team activities and minicamp? How has the work on the field influenced our roster projection?

Between injury updates (some news positive, some negative) and performance at practice, it’s a good time to revise our predictions to guess at who makes the cut for the 53-man roster in August. And it isn’t easy. The Saints have stacked up talent at some position groups while others are still looking thin, so maybe they’ll bring in some new faces over the summer. For now, here’s how we see it shaking out:

The New Orleans Saints are bringing in tight end Sal Cannella for a tryout on Thursday.

Cannella, 27, went undrafted in 2020 and wasn't signed to an NFL team that year. Cannella’s professional career would begin as a member of the TSL Generals of The Spring Football League. He would later join the Miami Dolphins for a brief 4-day stint before being selected as the second overall tight end in the USFL draft by the New Orleans Breakers. Cannella would spend the last few years bouncing between spring football leagues and NFL rosters.

As expected, CB Kool-Aid McKinstry’s versatility will be tested during his rookie season with the New Orleans Saints.

According to head coach Dennis Allen, McKinstry will compete at both the inside (slot) and outside corner positions. However, it appears that he is currently sidelined with an injury during minicamp. NOF.com’s Nick Underhill also noted that he worked with a trainer on the field during Tuesday’s practice.

McKinstry was drafted by the Saints with the 41st pick in the 2024 NFL Draft. Prior to the draft, McKinstry was largely regarded as a first-round pick by many analysts...

Khai Harley, Mickey Loomis and the New Orleans Saints have a better understanding of the salary cap than pretty much every other team in the league. Every year they find themselves millions of dollars over the cap, but they’re always able to dig themselves out of it, even if it means kicking the can down the road a bit.

According to Over the Cap, the Saints had just under $5 million in cap space before they reworked Taysom Hill’s deal, which was first reported by Nick Underhill. He went from a cap hit of $15.7 million to $6.8 million, freeing up a lot more cap space for the Saints to work...
