Saints reportedly will practice in Oxnard later this month
The New Orleans Saints intend to spend three days this month practicing in Oxnard, site of previous Dallas Cowboys training camps, according to an individual familiar with the Saints' plans.
The individual, who was not involved in the decision, said the three-day stint will be around the time the Saints play at Oakland in an Aug. 28 exhibition game.
Calls to the Saints and Oxnard City Manager Edmund Sotelo were not immediately returned.
It is not known whether the practices will be open to the public, although the Saints typically allow for spectators at training camp.
It's not surprising the Saints would follow in the footsteps of the Cowboys, as New Orleans Coach Sean Payton is a former Dallas assistant coach.
