Standout players, observations and notes from the first open practice of training camp.
Attendance: Cornerback Grant Haley was the only player not spotted. Some of the other injured players, like Derrick Kelly, P.J. Williams and Wil Lutz worked out off to the side.
Dress code: Shorts and shells
Overview: The Saints spent a lot of time working on running plays and operated primarily out of base looks throughout the day. The session lasted approximately 150 minutes and took place inside the indoor training facility. There was one team period where the top two quarterbacks got five or six dropbacks to close the session. The offense appeared to be in rhythm and was probably a little bit ahead of the defense on the first day.
New Orleans followed a similar schedule last year on the first day, focusing primarily on running plays with just one period of the full offense on display. The only difference this year is that the team didn’t do any one-on-one periods, which is a change from other training camps.
