Saints News, 7/7/14: Saints Begin Move To West Virginia For Training Camp

Jon Durr

In April, The Greenbrier began construction on three fields (two grass, one FieldTurf) and an adjoining 55,000 square-foot building that will house the team's meeting rooms, locker rooms, coaches' offices, training rooms, medical facilities, dining room and weight room. The Greenbrier had been actively pursuing the Washington Redskins' training camp for years. But when Saints coach Sean Payton caddied for PGA Tour pro and friend Ryan Palmer in last year's Greenbrier Classic, the wheels were instead set in motion for another team.
