In partnership with the New Orleans Saints, Cox Sports Television will kick off New Orleans Saints coverage Thursday, July 29th. The Saints Training Camp Report on CST will open with the first full day of practice and culminate following the final preseason game of the year against the Arizona Cardinals.
Longtime New Orleans sportscasters John DeShazier and Todd Graffagnini will host the exclusive daily 15-minute look into Black and Gold football from the Saints headquarters in Metairie.
For the 2021-22 version of the Saints, all eyes will initially focus on the quarterback battle between Taysom Hill and Jameis Winston. One of these two signal callers will face the unenviable task of replacing future hall of famer Drew Brees and lead New Orleans into the future.

Regardless of who is under center, right tackle Ryan Ramczyk will continue to be the anchor of the offensive line. The NFL All-Pro inked a deal with the Saints that will keep him in New Orleans for the foreseeable future.

Luckily for the Saints, the offensive weapons will be plentiful. Wideout Michael Thomas and all-everything running back Alvin Kamara will handle most snaps offensively. The Saints also still have Sean Payton calling the plays.
The Saints lost some key faces on defense, but their star power returns. Demario Davis, Marshon Lattimore and Cameron Jordan led a 2020 team that surrendered the fifth fewest points per game in the league and led the NFL in interceptions. Veteran leadership and newcomers through the draft should be enough to keep the Saints at the top of the league.
