The Saints spent the 10th day of practice indoors after Sunday night’s session at Tulane.

Monday’s practice brought plenty of action on offense and defense while the Saints focused on third-down situations, and the indoor work left a good impression on coach Sean Payton.

“I thought last night was one of our better practices, and I felt they followed up today with another good practice on both sides of the ball,” Payton said. “So, there will be a little time now where they’re off. We’re kind of into our Tuesday off day and kind of go from there.”

The Saints are picking a good time to build momentum with strong showings in practice, of course.



Bridgewater shines

With Drew Brees taking an apparent veteran’s day off, Teddy Bridgewater had every opportunity to shine with the first- and second-team offenses.

And Bridgewater did not disappoint.

During a 7-on-7 drill, Bridgewater completed every pass and showed exceptional touch with completions on intermediary routes and long throws. One of the throws during the segment was a gorgeous effort down the seam to tight end Josh Hill, who got behind the safeties for a nice gain. Bridgewater led him with the toss.

Hampton … again

Through the past three days, it’s been extremely difficult to ignore rookie safety Saquan Hampton, whom the Saints selected in the sixth-round of the 2019 NFL draft.

Hampton came up with a leaping interception on Saturday, tipped a pass Sunday night that led to a turnover and Monday made yet another athletic play on a ball that was almost picked off during an 11-on-11 drill.

D.A. may have to find a way to have some two-high safety sets...

I'm thinking the base set should be 4-2-3, where the third safety just options between the box and mid field.

I am a Saquan Hampton fan. I'm excited to see him vs Vikes. He should get plenty of reps.

We drafted two good safeties later in the draft. They are rookies but they look like impact players.
