The New Orleans Saints will return their training camp activities to the Greenbrier for the third-straight year, according to a report.
Despite reports saying the New Orleans Saints are considering bringing training camp back home to the team facility in Metairie, LA, it sounds like Sean Payton and company are headed back to the mountains of West Virginia this summer, according to Pro Football Talk.
Staying away from the hot, humid Louisiana climate absolutely makes sense, but after two trips to The Greenbrier and two-consecutive losing seasons, many fans feel it’s time for a change.
While some may believe a new destination is necessary, that was not the reason for the New Orleans Saints’ struggles over the past two years. You can blame that on poor play and coaching on defense, in addition to bad draft picks and a handful of questionable free agent signings catching up with them.
After earlier reports hinted at a possible return to New Orleans, fans got their hopes up. Many of them would love to see their team in the flesh rather than reading about camp in articles and watching highlight reels on the evening news. But it’s still possible.
Since taking activities to The Greenbrier, the Saints have returned home for the final couple of weeks to give fans the opportunity to see them up close and personal. Though, for the first few weeks, beautiful, luxurious West Virginia it is.
