Saints Will Indeed Return To Greenbrier For Training Camp
Over the last two summers, the New Orleans Saints have taken their team to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia to hold training camp at the Greenbrier.
Despite a Fox Sports report of the Saints considering leaving the Greenbrier to hold all of training camp at their practice facility in Metarie, they will indeed return to the Greenbrier Resort once again this July, according to multiple reports.
The Saints signed a three-year deal with the Greenbrier Resort to hold training camp on location. Football practice grounds and a training facility were built by the Greenbrier for the Saints to use. This summer will mark the last year of their current 3 year deal.
New Orleans is 7-9 the last two seasons. While the host site of training camp likely doesn't have anything to do with the losing records, fans have voiced concern that the "country club training camp" has caused negative issues for the team on the playing field.
The New Orleans Pelicans, also owned by Saints owner Tom Benson, held part of their training camp in the fall at the Greenbrier. They are currently 23-35, last place in the Southwest Division.
