Saints News, 5/26/14: Saints To Return To Football With OTAs This Week

New, comments

OTAs are practices in which no live contact can occur. While 11-on-11 practice work is allowed, one-on-one drills are not allowed. Players cannot work for longer than six hours, and practices are limited to two hours, with coaches able to provide instruction. OTAs are voluntary.
