METAIRIE, La. — The New Orleans Saints officially opened training camp Thursday morning at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center in Metairie.

Saints Head Coach Sean Payton fielded questions about camp expectations along with Alvin Kamara, Demario Davis, Marcus Davenport, Tre’Quan Smith, and Terron Armstead.

“I don’t know that it’s any different this year for me. In other words, it’s different because one of the players we lost was our quarterback that had been with us for a long period of time. Outside of that, there’s a certain amount of attrition every year. The NFL is a young players league. Our job is to draft players, train them, develop them and get them ready to play. Certainly, there are some position groups that are younger than others, but I think that’s pretty consistent with the job description year in and year out,” says New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton.
