Saints News, 5/22/15: No 'Hard Knocks' For 2015 Saints

New, comments

ProFootballTalk.com reports that nine teams were eligible to be 'drafted' to do the HBO 'Hard Knocks' show this year and the Saints are not among them. Excellent! We don't need that training camp distraction. The nine teams being considered are the Giants, Vikings, Bucs, Rams, Bills, Texans, Jaguars, Titans, and Washington.
