WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — There’s always no place like home.

But the Saints have found a second one.

“I’ve already told coach (Sean) Payton that if you move it from here, I don’t know if I’m coming back,” tackle Zach Strief said as the team wrapped up nearly three weeks of training camp Wednesday at The Greenbrier. “I know we’ve got three more years here, so I’m good for all three.

“I think everybody wants to keep coming back.

If there was skepticism about the benefits of an NFL team moving training camp from its up-to-date (and state-funded) Metairie facility to this five-star resort located in a rural corner of southern West Virginia which had no football facilities until they were carved out of a mountain, it quickly dissipated when the players not only discovered the amenities such a place provides, but the extraordinarily cool temperatures.

It was usually in the 60s for morning practices and 81 was the highest for an afternoon session.
