The linebacker competition is the most hotly contested position battle in New Orleans Saints training camp, but it would be hard to know that from watching practice.
Almost anytime the music starts, Craig Robertson and Manti Te'o are the first to feel the beat. Demario Davis frequently grooves, and Nate Stupar likes to flash his moves, too, though his teammates like to give him a hard time.
"They consider theirs dancing. They kind of make fun of my dancing," Stupar said. "I'm still trying to learn, trying to pick up some moves."
Lucky for him, the coaches and scouts aren't judging the linebackers on their dance skills, but the energy the veteran group of linebackers bring to practice benefits the entire team.



"We don't look at (training camp) as competition," Robertson said. "We look at it as everybody getting better and everybody teaching each other. There's nobody looking at anybody the wrong way. It's a healthy competition because we got bigger goals than this competition that we got going on in the room."

"Let me see who else I'm missing ... the coach, coach he's a dawg " ... Craig Robertson.

That was funny.

Craig’s been such a terrific and underrated addition to the team. I think he’s played a pretty big role in the culture change of the defense.
