I look forward to these joint practices ... new faces, live reps & different competition will be a good thing.

More importantly, the weather will be a lot less humid than in Metairie.

Reduces the possibility of cramps.

There are some good matchups practicing against the Chargers. Most notably, can Jared Cook get anything going against Derwin James?

And great for our O-line to go up against Ingram and Bosa.

Chargers have some good, big receivers too.

New faces give you new challenges. I like the Chargers. Always have. Didn't they give us Lutz?

No, you're correct. He was waived by Baltimore in August of 2016 and we picked him up in September.
