New Orleans Saints Training Camp Primer with John Hendrix of Saints News Network

Locked On Saints - Daily Podcast On The New Orleans Saints show

Summary: New Orleans Saints training camp is right around the corner, so John Hendrix of Saints New Network joins today's episode of Locked On Saints. First, Ross and John break down everything you need to know around Michael Thomas' timetable and the young wideouts on the roster who will need to step up and produce in the All-Pro's absence. Tre'Quan Smith made his name as a deep threat on the outside in college, now he'll be asked to show he can still operate downfield. Marquez Callaway flashed in big moments last season, he now has the chance to show he's more than just a flash in the pan. Meanwhile, more players on the market remain that could be impactful for the Saints. Even though they signed Chris Hogan, names like Alshon Jeffrey, Kenny Stills, and more are still available. John and Ross then discuss the value of the recent Brian Poole signing. Even though Poole bring value to a team that may need to ask Patrick Robinson to move from the slot to outside, the Saints shouldn't be done at the position with boundary corners still available for pursuit. Finally, John breaks down what he's excited to see on the offense and defensive sides of the ball in camp as well as under-the-radar storylines to watch. The quarterback battle between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill may headline camp, but the wide receiver position, Adam Trautman's ascension atop his position group, and several talented young names on defense are worth your attention. Along with a QB battle, there will also be a punter battle to enjoy between Blake Gillikin and Nolan Cooney. From the signal callers to the special teamers, Saints camp in no way lacks of intrigue.
