The New
Orleans Saints
have been busy in the months leading up to
training camp, working out privately with personal trainers and
their more-experienced peers. Let’s take a quick look around the
roster to see how different players are preparing:

There’s been a lot of noise made over how “raw”
Davenport is coming out of the gate, especially his lack of
experience in a three-point stance. He’s had a busy summer since
getting drafted, working out with other rookies on the beach in Los
Angeles and attending Von
’s Ozarks
Mountains retreat
, featuring guest coaches like Bruce
Smith and Warren
. We know Davenport will enter training camp ready
for action after a minor thumb injury sidelined him in OTA’s. I’m
eager to see how he develops under defensive line coach Ryan
Nielsen’s instruction.

ended his rookie year with a big mistake that we
won’t discuss further in this space. He apparently locked himself
in a gym for the next six months, motivated to be the best version
of himself. Now the sophomore looks
the part
of a Mr. Universe competitor, and maybe a Pro Bowl
safety. Send thoughts and prayers and good vibes to whichever poor
receiver (Mike
) is going to get tested by Williams
first on an ill-advised sideline jump ball (from Ryan
) first (week one, against the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers

On the
other side of the ball, Saints left tackle Terron
has been going through the ringer at Duke
Manyweather’s offensive line training facility. Manyweather is an
innovator in training techniques for linemen, and has recently been
working with clients like Armstead, Philadelphia
right tackle Lane
, and Jacksonville
tackles Jermey
and Cam
. Now that he’s back to his old self after a few
untimely injuries, Armstead should cement himself as a top five
left tackle in the NFL.

went viral earlier this summer for hauling a Jeep
and loaded squat rack down the road, but he’s also kept busy by
putting on a couple of youth football camps in
New Orleans
. Michael
(now bulked up to about 220-pounds) flew out to
join Drew
near the future Hall of Famer’s San Diego home to
practice timing routes and keep fresh during the long break between
OTA’s and training camp.

Even the special teamers are getting in good work.
Saints placekicker Wil
first took the field on the coaching staff for the
College Football Kicking Camp
, then worked out last week
with his NFL peers at Kohl’s facilities to warm up for training

different team-building exercises the Saints players have taken on.
took the team bowfishing one night, and seemingly
everyone but Kamara
caught something. Kamara found payback by challenging his teammates
and fans to paintball, and is apparently still-undefeated weeks
later. The coaches got involved, too, with Sean Payton losing a
couple of bets on the green to Eagles head coach Doug Pederson.
Payton’s golfing shenanigans only got worse, and it’s fair to think
he’s more ready than anyone to get back to football:
