Saints head coach talks about morning practice in front of fans

The New Orleans Saints completed their third minicamp practice at noon today in front of their fans at the club's practice facility in Metairie. Following the practice, Saints Coach Sean Payton discussed the progression of the minicamp and the offseason, as well as several othe team issues in a question and answer session.


Opening Statement: “For this afternoon’s practice were are probably going to go inside. I thought we got good work this morning and the weather held up.”

What held Malcolm Jenkins back?

“Basically he has a bruised knee. He probably won’t go this afternoon; we’ll see how it feels in the morning. Fortunately it’s just a knee contusion.”

Do you like what you see from him so far?

“Yes, since he’s been here, whether it’s been from defense, snaps on defense, or in the kicking game, he just keeps getting better and learning.”

How far along are Devery Henderson and Jon Stinchcomb from their sports hernia surgeries? They seem like they are doing pretty well.

“I think our goal with both of those players is too hopefully get them some work here before we break. That means we got have more weeks of OTAs after this mini camp so you have to progress as they feel. They’re working out. They’re involved in the walk-throughs. Hopefully, sooner than later, as it’s a little bit harder to put a timeframe on it. Probably in Jon’s case, the restrictions in his position, might be a little different than in Devery’s. But hopefully before we break here in the middle of June.”

Are they faster? I mean they are out there running.

“These things progress pretty quick. When you go back through the season, and you look at Jabari’s (Greer), and we’ve had a handful of players now that have gone in that direction. It’s hard to just say it’s going to be four weeks or three weeks, you’re always somewhere in that month to month and a half range, 4-6 weeks. And a lot of it is dependant on the amount of work, not each one of them is exactly the same. We are hopeful though that those two are going to get some work here before we break.”

Read the rest here...

Re: Day Two Minicamp Update

I'm unfortunately apprehensive about Jenkins. I loved the pick, then he was held back.... although he showed "on the spot" ability in pre-season. When they've put him in at safety, he was hit or miss. He''d sometimes show up big, but then the next play or so be out of position and getting burned.

I'm pretty certain he's not CB material..... he's just too slow. I think he can be a great safety but has to get the system down (as he showed glimpses of). Until I see it consistently, I'm holding my breath. I'm just afraid he's too slow all together..... hope I'm wrong.... I really do.... but with little time put in on the field with the clock running, I don't want to see a career hampered by nagging, recurring little injuries either though.

i agree, but i really think he was drafted for our future saftey all the way. they just wanted to see if he could play corner in the nfl and found out that he's just not quick enough. he has speed just not for corner. that body is made for saftey anyway.
