With the New Orleans Saints set to enter their first training camp since 2006 without Sean Payton as head coach, there won't be a lack of intrigue surrounding the team. That especially will be true for several prominent players on a roster that New Orleans believes is playoff-caliber and prepared to hit the ground running. Here are five to watch during training camp 2022:



Receiver Michael Thomas:
When last we saw a healthy Michael Thomas, he caught an NFL-record 149 passes for a franchise-record 1,725 yards and nine touchdowns in 2019, when he was the NFL's Offensive Player of the Year. Even though New Orleans added prominent talent to the receiver room – veteran Pro Bowler Jarvis Landry and promising rookie Chris Olave – Thomas' availability and production loom largest. Simply, he has great short-area quickness, fabulous hands and understands angles and positioning like few others. If his ankle finally is healed, and he's 100 percent, he commands the kind of attention that allows teammates to get open, while possessing the ability to be "open" even when he's not really "open." Reports are that he's ready and if he is, the Saints' offense will be different.

Honestly, without anybody from New Orleans to meet up with I think I will dedicate that time instead to catch up on work before I head out to Europe for 3 weeks.

Without any of my B&G brothers able to make it, I think I will spend that time taking care of business before I head off to Europe for 3 weeks. I hate missing this training camp especially, but I am running out of time.

Sorry for the double post.

I never knew he played for Lutcher Bulldogs. Hearing that schools name brought back som memories. They absolutely demolished us in the state playoffs back in 1999

Is it just me, or is the chemistry on this years team REALLY good, maybe the best we've had?
