Saints News 4/14/13: First Team Workouts for 2013 Season Start Monday

New, comments

We're so starved for real Saints news that the weightlifting, conditioning, and rehab work being started by Saints players on Monday seems quite exciting! Even more exciting than maybe, possibly, getting the Jets' 4th round pick for Chris Ivory.

Oh, when the 2013 Saints...hit the weight room!
