The New Orleans Saints will not return to West Virginia for training camp in 2017.

After holding summer practices at The Greenbrier resort the past three years, the Saints will have a new training camp location this year, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the plans.

The Saints signed a three-year contract with the resort in 2014, but the team will not extend its relationship with the hillside estate in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va.

Hmm I wonder if this was the cause of our playoffs slump? Think the players had too much leisure time while they were there?

Nah. The only reason we aren't going back is because Payton broke up with his girlfriend. Duh.

I know a few thousand Who Dats who would love for them to come back out to SoCal for TC.

I can't wait to hear where camp is at. I've heard North LA rumored. Shreveport area would be perfect for me.

I think the Saints should go back to Jackson, MS.

If Payton gets confirmation of us being chosen for Hard Knocks he will likely move it to Siberia.

I'd be willing to bet, in some small way, the decision to not return is because we might be chose for Hard Knocks. I don't think they want the country to see how cushy the players have had it the past few seasons.

Maybe?

Doubtful. The Greenbrier is home to the new spring football league, the owner is now the state's governor with much bigger problems to deal with, and the contract has expired. And there was nothing "cushy" about camp other than the weather conditions.
