From the article above...
How different and challenging has it been to adjust without an offseason and without a preseason?

“It’s a little bit more like the college preseason,” Payton said. “We still have a good month, month and change before we begin play. We’ll create scrimmage situations. During the course of certain practices, we’ll make sure that we’re getting the fundamentals of tackling and pad level and all those things that you need to correct in preseason games. It will just come a little bit more from our practices.”

While position players are in close quarters at the Saints facility in Metairie in some cases, that is not the primary concern for Payton. There are fiberglass dividers in the locker room.

“We’re relying more on what’s taking place outside the building prior to coming here,” Payton said. “We’re testing daily. No news is good news. No positive tests yet. We’re at 80 (roster size) and yet we don’t ever take that for granted. More than anything, we’re trying to follow the protocol and guidelines, not only in the building but away from the building.”
Dang right! No news IS good news! Keeping my fingers crossed that every team is taking such precautions as well.

I like the Saints advantage in this particular climate. I think the Saints have more continuity than most teams, and I think we will see that translate on the field, especially early in the season.
