Kristian: Saints back on the field for week 2 of OTA's
The Saints are back on the practice field today, as they open week 2 of Organized Team Activities. Coach Sean Payton said that the coaching staff is doing more teaching than evaluating at this point.
"We're installing offense and defense and the same in the kicking game," the coach explained last week. "There are a lot of new faces and a lot of learning."
Payton and the Saints have boasted 100% attendance in the offseason conditioning program and OTA's.
The Saints are installing a new 3-4 scheme under Defensive Coordinator Rob Ryan.
"Obviously they're putting in a new package and getting players acclimated to new positions, so from that standpoint, it's going real well," Payton said after the first three days of practice.
The Saints will host mini-camp next week, June 4th through 6th, at the teams training facility on Airline Drive.
