The New Orleans Saints may move their training camp away from The Greenbrier in West Virginia and back Airline Dr in Metairie, according to the NFL Network. Gil Brandt tweeted that training camp, starting July 27, has been moved to Metairie. No confirmation on this. If fact, it appears to be status quo in regards to the Greenbrier.
The devastating floods in WV have forced Saints to move training camp to their Metairie facility, starting July 27.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) June 27, 2016
Several other refute this claim:
Saints are still planning to go. There are no plans to move it. https://t.co/uK4RATWzo3— Katherine Terrell (@Kat_Terrell) June 27, 2016
Mike Florio of PFT also reporting no change as of yet.
Gil Brandt of NFL.com has reported that the Saints will not be coming to West Virginia this year, and that they instead will train at the team’s facility in Metairie, Louisiana.
However, the Saints haven’t announced this news, and a team spokesman told PFT that word of a change in location of training camp has not yet made its way to him.
With training camp still a month away there is plenty of time for The Greenbrier to address the problems caused by the recent flooding. None of the training facilities were reported to be impacted by the floods. Will there be a change. Maybe, but nothing is certain yet.
