According to a report from the NFL rumor site ProFootballTalk.com, the Patriots and Saints will hold joint training camp practices this summer.
Joint camp practices have become an annual occurrence for Bill Belichick's team, including work with the Saints in Foxborough in past summers.
New England is scheduled to play a preseason game in New Orleans on Aug. 22 and the workouts would lead up to that contest. But in unique fashion, the practices will reportedly take place at the Saints summer complex at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia.
The Saints held three weeks of training camp at Greenbrier last year and will return this summer. The Patriots will join that work for three days before the two squads head to New Orleans for the Aug. 22 game.
Last summer the Patriots held joint practices with the Redskins in Richmond, Va., prior to a preseason game in Washington.
