Saints News, 5/5/15: Texans and Saints Will Work Out Together This Offseason

New, comments

From ProFootballTalk.com: According to multiple reports, there will be two days of joint practices between the teams before they face off in their third exhibition contest of the year. It’s the first time the Saints have practiced with another team since 2012, but it looks like it is going to be a tradition for the Texans under Bill O’Brien.
