Saints News 6/2/13: Three Saints OTA Practices STILL Scheduled As Open To Public

New, comments

But after what happened with rookie mini camp, I won't actually believe it until I see that has Dave set up the nola.com live tweet window post capturing all the ENERGY of every catch, drop, run, and two-hand touch lack of contact, tweet by tweet. Also, Kenny Chesney can't stop his cheatin' heart.

Fans will get to see this kind of thing LIVE when some OTAs will be open to the public next week.
