Saints players, coaches visit WWII museum for final day of off-season training
NEW ORLEANS - The Saints spent their last day of off-season training not on the field but honoring the fallen at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.
The group's final day of organized team activities, an annual slate of optional team exercises between regular seasons, was held Thursday. While some teams opted to either cancel the final day or turn it into more of a bonding experience, Head Coach Sean Payton used the day to bring his team to the WWII museum in observance of D-Day.
