Resident Pro’s: Spirited practice highlights day 13 of Saints Camp

Bobby, Deuce sound off


By Deke Bellavia, @dekebigchief

It was the 13th practice of training camp for the New Orleans Saints, and it was one of the better practices overall thus far.  “I thought it was a competitive practice.  But overall today I would give the day to the Saints Offense,” said Deuce McAllister.

The Cajun Cannon Bobby Hebert said it was good to see the Saints have a good practice in front of the fans.  “I like when the defense makes plays and then the defensive players on the side show support to their teammates,” said Bobby Hebert.

Bobby was very pleased with the play of Saints veteran DE Cam Jordan.  “Cam is a pro’s pro.  He’s gotten better each year.  And he’s one of those players that leads by example.  Cam Jordan is one of the better players in the NFL.  And his teammates respect him.”

The Saints worked through the humid practice and then got a break with some rain dropping at times in practice.

Some of the Defensive highlights from practice included

Saints Safety Kenny Vaccaro had a sack on QB Drew Brees

Veteran DE Cam Jordan had a monster day.  #94 caught a tipped ball and took it to the house for a TD.  And later in practice Cam disrupted what looked to be an attempted Flee Flicker by the Saints Offense

DL Mitchel Loewen was active getting in on a couple of QB Sacks

Rookie DE Al Muhammad continues to have a nice camp.  Muhammad got by Saints OT’s in pass rushing one on one drills.  And the rookie from the U drew praise from Saints Coach Sean Payton

On Offense these player stood out

Rookie RB Alvin Kamara was very active at practice.  In drills Kamara was able to leap over a stack of tackling dummies. And later the former Tennessee Vol hauled in a nice back shoulder throw from Drew Brees scoring over LB Alex Anzalone. 

TE Josh Hill was in on two TD receptions including a beautiful grab from QB Drew Brees for a TD in Goal Line action

RB Darius Victor continues to do good things at camp.  Victor hauled in a short Screen Pass from back-up QB Ryan Nassib and then was able to break loose on his way to the End Zone

WR Willie Snead showed up finding open spots in Zone Coverage and Snead had a good showing in one on one situations  

Saints CB Delvin Breaux, Marshawn Lattimore, Arthur Mallet, RB Travarious Cadet and Rookie DL Trey Hendrickson were some of the notable players that did not practice.  And second year RB Daniel Lasco wore a Red Non-contact jersey. 

Up next for the Saints is another open practice.  New Orleans will practice (weather permitting) from 8:50AM to 11:40AM Sunday August 13th at their facility on Airline Drive.  And for the latest on the Black and Gold log on to
