Payton Speaks to the Media Post Practice on July 31, 2010
New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton

Post-Practice (A.M.) Press Conference

Saturday, July 31, 2010

Opening Statement:

"In regards to practice, it was pretty much the same as yesterday. DeMario Pressley we held out with his back; we’ll see where he’s at for this afternoon. This afternoon’s practice will be inside and then tomorrow the afternoon practice will be outside.”

You mentioned prior to camp wanting to look at some other guys at punt returner? Is there something you want to improve there or just see other players?

“There are two parts to that. When it comes to the returners, we’ll continue to work Reggie (Bush) and Lance Moore, but you’re going to see Tracy Porter get work, Rod Harper a year ago did some good things in the preseason. Overall in the return game, it’s just being more efficient with our blocks and setting up our returns. It’s just one phase, one specific area we look at to try to improve on and really get to where we were executing in the postseason. It was something that we did a better job with as the year went on. But you’ll see those four guys working back there as returners, and depending on the depth at the other spots, who’s in the front unit blocking.”

How do you balance the risk of using someone like Porter who is so valuable to the team as a cornerback?

“It’s the same risk that exists for Reggie Bush or Lance Moore. If you look at the returners in our league, there are a handful of guys that are return specialists and then there’s about two-thirds of the league where the players are playing another position. That’s part of the deal.”

I've always wondered to myself when Porter would get a crack at returning... finally got my answer. I'm excited to see what he can do back there.

I'd still like to see Reggie back there.
