Kristian@wwl.com - The Saints return to the team’s training facility today as they start organized team activities. The Saints aren’t on the field yet, but will start conditioning and weight lifting in the early goings of training.
The players are tweeting about their excitement to return to work. “Excited to get back to work today w/ my teammates. It’s gonna be a great year. Who Dat!” Saints wide receiver Land Moore posted on his Twitter account. Fullback Jed Collins is also excited to be back with his teammates. “Woke up and realized it’s Day 1 of the 2013 season. Time to get to work.”
The players who didn’t get to meet Sean Payton last year will get their chance today. Drew Brees said at the end of last season that it will be a bit of a “culture shock” to some players when they finally meet their head coach.
That’s right, the foundation for the season is being poured right now. The NFL draft is 10 days away, and the Saints hit the field for some practices in few weeks. Football will be here before we know it. Thank God, because I can’t watch another episode of Duck Dynasty or Celebrity Apprentice.
