Saints training camp moved indoors Thursday

Posted: Updated:

The New Orleans Saints moved Thursday's practice indoors, and will practice outdoors for Friday's practice, which was moved to 8:50 in the morning.

It was a relatively slow day at Saints training camp. There is a battle for the 4th receiver spot and a number of young wideouts are vying for it. The Saints 4th round pick last season Nick Toon is emerging as the front runner, but this year's 5th round pick Kenny Stills has also shown some signs that he could make a play for that spot..

"There are a lot of guys who are standing out, I mean literally ever single one of them. You put them in there, feel a level of confidence with them. Still a lot of football to be played." said Drew Brees.

The biggest play of the day came when Drew Brees hit Courtney Roby on a slant and Roby blew by Keenan Lewis for the long touchdown catch. A couple Acadiana natives where on hand. NFL official Greg Gautreaux and his son Daniel were working Thursday morning practice and also meet with the team to discuss some of the major rule changes this season in the NFL.

The biggest story was the fact that Sarah Thomas was working with the NFL to become the first female full time NFL ref.

"I never set out to be the first or a pioneer, I embrace it, but I just have individuals out here working, black white, male female, but collectively we're one unit, out here. " said Thomas.

Lance Moore is being called the senior receiver by Payton and Brees and says he's not so sure he wants that title.

"I don't want to get that label. It's definitely a credit to the way that I worked. We're seven days in and it's my ninth training camp but it feels like our 15th." said Moore.
