The Saints are coming back to West Virginia. And this year, they’ll have company.
Per multiple sources, the Patriots intend to join the Saints for three days of practices at the Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.
The practices will occur prior to the August 22 preseason game between the two teams in New Orleans. The Patriots will travel to West Virginia, the two teams will practice there, and then both teams will travel to Louisiana for the game.
The Saints held three weeks of training camp at the Greenbrier in 2014, providing them an environment with lower temperatures and humidity.
In West Virginia, the two teams will practice at a first-class facility that the Greenbrier built in a fairly short period of time. The Cardinals are considering spending the week practicing there between October games at Detroit and Pennsylvania.
