The New Orleans Saints are staying home for training camp in 2017.

The Saints announced Thursday that training camp will be held at the team's practice facility in Metairie after spending the past three years at The Greenbriar in Sulphur Springs, W.V.

"We first want to thank Governor Jim Justice and everybody at The Greenbrier, as well as all of our fans who attended training camp there for such an outstanding experience," general manager Mickey Loomis said in a statement. "Jim, his staff and the community went above and beyond to embrace our organization and create a great environment for our football team.

"However, we have decided that holding training camp at our practice facility is the right thing to do for our club at this time, where we have the combination of an indoor practice facility in the case of inclement weather as well as access to all of the state-of-the art technology in areas such our medical, weight and video facilities, all factors which are integral to supporting the preparations of our football team."

Re: Saints to hold 2017 Training Camp at Metairie facility

Fantastic!!! Maybe I can make more practices along with the rest of the regional fans. It's good to have them home where they can focus on football and not the resort golf course and massages. I like having the team available for the fans. With 7-9 seasons building comradre with the fan base is a good idea.

Is it gonna be "roughing it" when they go to their million dollar homes with personal chefs after practice?

Pretty smart. We can go inside when it just gets too freaking hot or the weather gets bad.

No more logistics hoops to jump thru.

They still have the indoor facility. Not sure what the big deal is or why they need to train anywhere else. Yeah, it's hot but it's not hard mitigating hydration. Drink water fool. A lot of it. And change the practices to the early morning and late afternoon. Leave 11-230PM alone.

It's going to be tough getting to work as I live only 1.5 miles away from the Saints' facility.
