Saints scrap final day of OTAs


The Saints won’t need quarterback Chase Daniel on the final day of Organized Team Activities.  Or quarterback Drew Brees.  Or any quarterback.

Interim head coach Joe Vitt has decided to scrap the final day of voluntary practice, in favor of a round of golf.

We do it every year,” Vitt said, via Nakia Hogan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.  “Again, that’s something that Sean [Payton] did.  We’ve done things like paint ball, go-kart riding.  We’ve done a lot of different things.  So we’ll end that with a little team scramble.”

We recommend against pooling cash for longest drive or closest to the pin or, you know, first guy to knock someone unconscious with a ball.

It’s somewhat surprising that so many teams are still willing to ditch the final day of OTAs, given that the maximum has dropped from 14 to 10.  But like the last day of school, it’s doubtful that anything truly useful would happen in that final session, regardless of how many total practices are permitted.
