After casting a wide net looking for a joint practice, the Saints and Patriots have worked out a deal.
The Saints announced Tuesday they would go straight from the Hall of Fame Game against the Cardinals on August 5 to Foxborough, Mass., where they’ll work out with the Patriots for two days (August 7-8) before they play in a preseason game on August 9.
The Saints and Patriots practiced together in 2010 also. The Saints had asked around earlier this offseason, inquiring with four or five teams about finding a dance partner before reaching the deal with New England.
Players and coaches always love the workouts, as they give players a little extra incentive at a time in camp when they begin to get tired of looking at each other.
