There will be a Southern twang to the camp updates on Thursday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.
We’ll be chcecking in with the Saints as they reorient themselves to life with Sean Payton on the sideline after he missed all of the 2012 season because of a suspension. We’ll spend a little time on the offense, but the biggest questions about the Saints come on the other side of the ball. We’ll talk about the work that new coordinator Rob Ryan has done with the defense while catching up with things in New Orleans.
The Titans will also be on tap on Thursday afternoon. It’s a big year for quarterback Jake Locker and, by extension, for coach Mike Munchak. If both of them are going to be long-term answers at their spots, they’ll need to prove their value this season and we’ll find out how they are progressing toward that goal.
And the first full slate of preseason games will be kicking off Thursday, so we’ll spend some time previewing the matchups around the league.
It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
