NFL NOTES;Dual purposes;Evans sees wisdom in Pats-Saints practices

Having played four seasons under Bill Belichick in Foxboro,
where information is more closely guarded than paintings at the
Louvre, the idea of joint practice sessions between the
Patriots and New Orleans Saints did

He couldn’t fathom those two teams sharing a practice field

Belichick mind-set, you keep everything in-house,” Evans said of
the cooperative practices that have been set up prior to the
Pats-Saints preseason opener Aug. 12 at Gillette. “Why would you

opponent anything you do? Why would you want anyone a little more
familiar with how you’re trying to do things? Bill never did that
when I was there.”
