After all, our children are the future. So often, I feel that news of the bad boys of the NFL get so much more coverage, be it that its more salacious news, or our innate love of gossip, so it is so refreshing to see so many players this involved in molding youths futures. In an incredible show of support, 13 of Wilsons teammates and NFL friends (most of whom also grew up in Chicagoland) flew in to join the camp, immediately taking to the field upon their arrival to meet the campers and start showing them stretching exercises and leading them in drills that they themselves do. Friends for life, despite often competing against each other, Martez had 9 of his former University of Illinois teammates at the camp. This group included Mikel Leshoure Sr. (Detroit Lions), Glenn Foster (New Orleans Saints), Josh Brent (Dallas Cowboys), and Terry Hawthorne (Pittsburgh Steelers). Wilsons New Orleans based trainer, Sonic Booms founder Wyatt Harris, headed up coaching the camp. Not only was it impressive that he took the time to fly in, but what I found to be most impressive was the way in which he interacted with the campers.

For fans wishing to attend training camp, the practice sessions are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Gates will open to the public 45 minutes before each practice starts. Fans will enter the practice fields at the gate located on the corner of Elise Drive and Airline Highway. Bleacher seating is available along the north and west sides of the teams training facility; please note – there is no reserved seating. Standing room along the fence line is permitted. There is no admission charge for watching training camp practice and parking is free. Public parking is available in parking lots close to the team facility off of Airline Drive in Metairie. In the event of inclement weather, the team may move practice indoors with little or no advance warning.

Sean Payton

He became a regular part of the rotation, coming in as a pass-rush specialist. And he finished with a career-high five sacks in 12 games. Add that to the 4.5 sacks he tallied as a part-timer in 2011, and Galette has arguably established himself as the Saints’ best pass rusher. The former undrafted free agent is still a bit one-dimensional, though. He’ll have to continue to develop as a run defender, and he may be asked to cover at times as he adjusts to a new position in the Saints’ 3-4 defense. But chances are, the Saints will continue to play to his strengths, using him almost exclusively as a pass rusher.

Apparently, Joe Vitt said, We believe Mark Ingram is an elite back. So I guess the Saints have 4, because hes their 4th best, Ravitz tweeted during the 2012 season. New Orleans has since watched Chris Ivory escape his restricted free-agent deal so that number is cut down to three unless Ravitz likes Travaris Cadet more, and word is that Ingram is spending time at No. 3 backin training camp. Take what you will from the New Orleans Times-Picayune training camp report , but theres no doubt the Saints backfield remains crowded. Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles have been receiving the vast majority of the snaps with the first-team offense during these last three weeks of workouts and practices, writes Larry Holder. Thomas, predictably, tallied most of the carries when comparing Sproles workload as a traditional running back with Sproles wearing different hats depending on the play called. Mark Ingram is lining up with the second unit.

Ranking the New Orleans Saints’ players: No. 17, Junior Galette

After his suspension was lifted and he was finally healthy enough to play, Vilma managed to start in 10 games in 2012, but he never really got back to true form. However, his presence on the Saints defense was noticeable, as hes no doubt the heart and soul of the unit. Now under new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, Vilma and his teammates are trying to recapture the momentum they had going just a few years back on the teams Super Bowl run. Im sure Vilma is glad just to be back to playing the game he loves, while the pairing with Ryan is just a bonus. Vilma and Ryan are both going to have chips on their shoulders this season, as they both have something to prove. Ryan is trying to show that hes one of the best defensive minds in the game after being fired, while Vilma has to prove he still has it going into his 10th year in the league.

And Im not talking about just practices; Im talking about weight workouts, whatever we were doing, whether it was guys out there doing stuff on their own or once we got to practices. I am just amazed at the level of commitment that everyone has showed this offseason. Coming off of last season, this is exactly where you would hope it would be and it gets you excited about this year to come.” How important is it to you to have Sean Payton back in the building? The thing that I am most upset about last year was that our record was not indicative of the effort by our coaching staff in Seans absence. During unprecedented circumstances, I felt like our coaching staff, especially offensively, did a heck of a job and unfortunately our record didnt show that. Having Sean back obviously gives us a tremendous rush offensively because he was the mind behind this offense when we all got here in 2006.
