The Saints will open the 2014 preseason at St Louis and end it in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome against the Baltimore Ravens.

The club’s preseason schedule also includes a home game in week 2 against Tennessee, and a week 3 trip to Indianapolis.

The week three game at Indianapolis will be nationally televised on Saturday August 23rd.

Dates and times of the other games will be released later.

At LSU pro day, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis said the Saints will spend the first half of summer training camp at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

Loomis said he is still optimistic a long term deal will be struck between the Saints and tight end Jimmy Graham.

The Saints have franchised tag Graham, essentially taking him off the open market.

“We want to have Jimmy Graham on our team when camp begins, and he wants to be with us,” Loomis told a pack of reporters.  “We will just keep plugging away at the process. He’s got a great agent. They know what they are doing, so do we. Hopefully we will come to a conclusion at some point.”
