The New Orleans Saints also had a rookie camp over the weekend, but there’s been very little talk about that. There’s a reason for that -- the camp wasn’t open to the public or the media.
But the Saints will have a media session late Monday afternoon, where assistant head coach Joe Vitt, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael Jr. and special teams coordinator Greg McMahon are scheduled to review the minicamp.
According to the minicamp roster sent out by the Saints last week, the more than 20 rookie free agents were scheduled to take part on a tryout basis. Draft picks and undrafted rookies previously signed also were scheduled to take part. The Saints also were scheduled to bring in some veterans for tryouts. That list was highlighted by quarterback Brian Brohm. Other players with NFL experience who were scheduled to try out included linebacker Tressor Baptiste, defensive end Alex Daniels, defensive end William Davis, offensive tackle Hutch Eckerson, cornerback Brian Jackson, punter Kenneth Parrish, tight end Derek Schouman, fullback Frank Summers and linebacker Lawrence Wilson.
The Saints are likely to sign some of the rookies and veterans that were in for tryouts. We’ll have more on that and a wrap-up of the Saints’ minicamp after Vitt and the other coaches meet with the media.
