JUNIOR GALETTEMuch Better Practice I'm Getting Better #whodatnation Which Means We Are Getting Better S/O 2 Da Fans Starting Da #JuneYah Chant #WHODAT

WWL-TV SportsSome thoughts from #Saints training camp Day 4...

WWL-TV Sports1. #Saints WR Nick Toon had his worst day. He dropped at least 5 balls in his hands. We'll see how he recovers on Tuesday when prax resumes.

WWL-TV Sports 2. #Saints CB Patrick Robinson went out w/ a shoulder injury and Johnny Patrick replaced him. J Patrick played pretty well in his place.

WWL-TV Sports3. TE Jimmy Graham makes some spectacular catches....and then he drops something that should be an easy catch. Not sure why it's happening.

WWL-TV Sports4. #Saints AHC Joe Vitt did not like a question posed to him about Cam Jordan saying the DE had sweet feet. did not go well for reporter.

WWL-TV Sports5. I'm impressed with 4,144 fans at practice Sunday. It was a scorching, thick day and it was still full and spirited from the fans.
