For the second consecutive year, the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots will hold joint practices before their NFL preseason game this year.

Last year, the Patriots traveled to New Orleans for joint practices before the preseason game which was to take place at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. This year, with the Patriots hosting the Saints in the preseason, the Saints will make the trip to Foxborough for their practices before the first preseason game of the year. .

Additionally, the Saints and Houston Texans are expected to hold joint practices in Houston before the second preseason game (obviously also in Houston). Tentative dates are below, as reported first by NOLA.com:

Aug. 9-10: Joint practices with Patriots in Foxborough

Aug. 11: Patriots host Saints for Preseason Game 1 in Gillette Stadium

Aug. 18-19: Joint practices with Texans in Houston

Aug. 20: Texans host Saints for Preseason Game 2 at NRG Stadium
