Saints and Patriots organize a joint practice

AP

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. According to Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe, 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.

UPDATE 5:35 p.m. ET:  A league source tells PFT that the Saints had no discussions with any teams other than the Patriots about joint practices.

  1. The Pats will videotape the proceedings so as to have evidence of any bounties the Saints may have placed on Tom Brady.

  2. Starting 2012 we might have an annual NFL preseason cheat-off! I’m excited at the possibility.

  3. Good match, the biggest cheating team of all time and the dirtiest team of all time. Sorry, it was sitting there on a tee waiting for me to hit it.

  4. It’s actually a symposium to come up with new ways to cheat and devise proper procedures to hide the evidence better than both teams have in the past.

  5. As a Patriots fan and season ticket holder, I just went through and liked every negative comment related to Spygate and Bountygate.

    Because I enjoy horrible trolls clinging to garbage as an excuse for why their own team isn’t very good.

  6. Good match,the biggest cheating team and the dirtiest team , says the fan the losing’s team in the past five seasons in the NFL.

    Get over your sour grapes and grassy knoll fantasies sj39

  7. Laughing at all the bozo’s who think they’re breaking new comedy ground by busting out the ‘cheat’ taunts.

    Awesome job guys, now get back to that deep fat frier.

    Indeed. Well played, sir. Fore!

    TOM “Did you see all those hating trolls commenting about us on PFT?”

    DREW “Nah, but it sure is fun whipping their teams these last 10 years, though.”

  10. I heard they have “Mutiny on the Bounty” in the tape machine.

    …and since when does Aaron Hernandez need “joint practice”?
