Actually, I didnt get to get near, but I included some of the guys I did get to meet



I think I figured it out.
Great pics!

And are they in full pads yet because lots of guys can shine in limited contact drills?
I dont think he could pass up Khiry, Ingram, nor Thomas. Havent we before carried 5 RBs on the 53 man? Cadet has been running with 1st team KO and punt teams, so he is hoping for that at least.

Friday I noticed after an hour or so each they stopped and did stretches again, and another time did wind sprints to stay loose.

Thank you! I am very blessed to get all of these. I dont know how TCs are in NOLA or how it was in Oxnard, but overall I am like a kid in a candy store. Loving it.

Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

I admit I didn't know we actually carry 5 backs on the final 53. I am not big on Cadet at all so my opinion on Flanders is altered especially if he can return kicks at all. We haven't had a good returner since Reggie and last year we were awful in the return game in my opinion and like I said I've seen enough of Cadet. And our track record with UFA running backs is spectacular. He was a free agent right? Could Payton and Loomis have done it again?

Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

This RB Derrick Strozier looks really interesting. I think he could be a big threat to Cadet's roster spot.

Flanders looks incredibly, incredibly similar to Aaron Stecker.

Anyone else making the trek to Greenbriar?!? I can see why it's floundered as a resort - it's in the middle of No Where, West Virginia!!!
