Saints to spend part of summer training at Greenbrier

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints will spend part of their summer training at The Greenbrier for the third straight year.

The Greenbrier announced Tuesday that the Saints' 2016 training camp will start at The Greenbrier and end at the team's Metairie practice facility. It will include 22 practices. Players report July 27 for physicals, meetings and strength and conditioning tests.

Greenbrier owner and CEO Jim Justice said the resort looks forward to the players' return every year.

The Saints start on-field workouts in a non-padded practice session on July 28 and the first padded practice on July 30. Both run from 9:30 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.

The team will also participate in joint practices with the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., and the Houston Texans, both in August.
