New Orleans Saints begin offseason workout program

New Orleans Saints begin offseason workout program

The Saints begin their offseason conditioning program today – their version of the “first day of school” for the 2009 season.

Players were required to report to the team’s practice facility in Metairie this morning. Starting this week, they will begin their official weight-training and conditioning programs, though most NFL players stay in shape year-round these days. Players aren’t required to stay in New Orleans during the offseason program, as long as they stick to the routine wherever they might be.
Unfortunately, the team has decided to shut down access to the media this year until May, meaning we won’t be hearing much from players over the next two months. Hopefully we’ll still get to squeeze in a few interviews from time to time.

The first actual on-field activity will be the rookie camp May 8-10, which is also closed to the media. The first full-team practices will be May 19, when the Saints begin five weeks of OTAs (organized team activities). The full-squad minicamp is scheduled for June 5-7.
