Saints Training Camp Update - Day 10 Scrimmage

Saints fans got a chance to see close to game like situations today during the full go up intra squad scrimmage today, family day at training camp. On the whole, I would have to say the team looked pretty good, particularly the defense, and we should be pleased with what we have seen so far.

Notes from the game:

  • Colston didn't play.
  • Lance Moore looked pretty good and scored the first touchdown.
  • We saw a bit more of the kicking battle. Mehlhaff went 4/4 while Gramatica only went 4/5.
  • Reggie Bush saw the ball a lot and scored a touchdown on a short pass.
  • Sedrick Ellis seems to be making up for lost time and has almost caught up with everyone else. He had a sack, possibly two.
  • Scott Shanle also tallied a sack.
  • Aaron Glenn was all over the place and defended three passes. He may be old but he certainly has a chance to make this team as a nickel or dime back.
  • Drew Brees went 7/13 for 88 yards and 2 TD's. Pretty good.
  • The defense as a whole looked pretty solid. Can't say enough about this defensive line.
  • Skyler Green had probably the play of the day with a 97-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. That should greatly help his chances of making this team.

The Advertiser had, what else, a getting to know you type article about Aaron Glenn.

When I was coming out (of college)," Glenn said. "I thought this would be one of the places I went. This was one of the teams I visited.

"I guess things just come back around in life. Just having the opportunity to play here and it being close to my home in Texas, it worked out being a pretty good deal for me."

"I'm out there just playing," Glenn said, "and whatever role that the coaching staff wants me in, I'm willing to do that. I always go out there and prepare as a starter because you never know what happens.

"Last year when I was with Jacksonville, I was told I was going to be the nickel and be the fourth corner and I ended up starting seven games."

"We have a great group of guys here," he said. "It's good to be on a team where you have a whole secondary that's eager to learn, that's eager to get better. That's what we have here."

"No matter how old I get or what happens, I feel I can go out there and compete and play at a high level," Glenn said.
