The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their three day mini-camp with a Thursday morning practice at their facility on Airline Drive. The Saints will continue their off season program next week.
Some of the highlights from this morning’s practice included back to back touchdown passes from QB Sean Canfield to WR Adrian Arrington and Andy Tanner. All three quarterbacks looked good on the final day of practice.
“I thought that all of the QB’s made plays at times. You can see that Luke McCown is a veteran QB that has solid NFL experience. This is the best that Sean Canfield has every looked. In general the camp was very organized; the ball was hardly on the ground, no botched snaps. Mentally it looks like everyone knew what they were doing out there,” said Bobby Hebert.
One thing that stood out was depth at running back. Although there were no tackling drills during the camp, you could tell that the Saints once again have stockpiled the RB position.
“Travaris Cadet and Chris Taylor are players that may have a tough time making the Saints, but that does not mean that can’t make another team. They have good vision, they cut well and the do a good job of catching the football,” said Hebert.
Linebacker Martez Wilson had a sack and defensive end Greg Romeus did a good job of putting pressure on the QB at this morning’s practice. After the defense had an edge at the Wednesday morning practice, the offense looked to have the upper hand during the final practice of mini-camp.
QB Chase Daniel hit WR Lance Moore down the sideline for a 30-yard TD. Lance Moore hauled in the TD grab one handed. WR Chris Givens continued to stand out as he once again made a couple of nice grabs including a TD reception on an inside fade route from QB Luke McCown.
