Wet practice brings back memories of last season

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. — With the skies dark and a steady rain blanketing the field, the Saints player caught the ball along the sideline, turned up field and opened his eyes in panic when the defensive back covering him stripped the ball, scooped it up and ran in the opposite direction.

It may read like it, but this sequence didn't occur last season, when the Saints won only four of 10 games away from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and won one of four contests played in the rain.

This was Monday at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia, where Saints training camp has been held since July 24 and the team learned there's still lots of work to do if its offense aspires to be less vulnerable in the elements than it has been.

The fumble by first-year tight end Nic Jacobs, caused and recovered by undrafted rookie safety Pierre Warren, was one of at least six live balls to tumble to The Greenbrier's slick, soaked grass Monday.
