Breaking down Practice #9 of Saints training camp August 4, 2018


Larry Holder Luke Johnson here with you
at the Saints practice facility day ten practice nine over with full pads today
and pretty lively practice so we saw a lot of team drills a lot of 2-minute
drills and look you put on Twitter right after practice we saw a lot of good
things say from Tom Savage and honestly Drew Brees was a little bit up and down
but the day finished really well for him because really the superstar practice
today was Tommylee Lewis he was everywhere and he ended practice with a
big time touchdown leap and you wouldn’t expect him to be leaping at the back of
the end zone but that’s where Drew went with the football yeah five foot seven
Tommylee Lewis skying up there for for a practice ending touchdown catch I
thought he looked great today and he looked good from 7 on 7’s to 11 on 11s at two
minutes he had one drop but outside of that he was you know beating PJ Williams
and Patrick Robinson on his routes you know he needs that I think have a really good
camp and he said he’s been having a couple couple down days and he needed a
day like today and and he does because there’s there’s some competition there
for the fifth and six wide receiver spots if they keep that many so yeah I
thought he had a great day today and and it was a great end to a competitive
practice and you look at someone like Tommylee Lewis and he’s always gonna be
like a bubble guy on the roster because I can rattle off the top four wide
receivers and I would not name him but they typically keep five
last year they kept six he he kind of lingers around he always sees you can
always see the speed from Tommylee Lewis and Drew Brees talked about him
glowingly after practice today like it’s the third year with him and so I’m
curious to see how much Tommylee Lewis evolves because you’d love to have him
if you’re the Saints be your return guy and then he could play within the offense
but as Sean Payton has said he’s still waiting to hand out those roses for the
bachelor and for the whoever’s gonna win that kick return job the best analogy
that has been made so far in training no doubt ya know but you know and look I
think once the the games start and you know we can see some of these guys get a
chance to separate themselves in the return game yeah I want to see Brandon
Tate return because I think he’s looked really fluid catching punts at least and you know see some of these guys and live you know
contact and everything like that I think that’s when they’ll really start to
separate themselves but yeah today’s like today days like today helped guys
like Tommylee Lewis absolutely and you have some players a lot of players
missed practice today and I think on a notable sense we saw John Phillips who’s
a veteran tight end he was working out with the Saints after practice we
haven’t seen the Hooman out there he came back and then left Ben Watson’s
been out for practice so I think that honestly if I see John Phillips out
there that there might be some danger for the Hooman as far as injury wise to
where he’s number three on the totem pole and if you’re bringing in Phillips
who they know who’s been on this roster before it might be something to keep an
eye on yeah yeah for sure and and you know we haven’t seen we haven’t seen Ben
Watson out here since he left practice I think maybe was Monday I think it was
Monday left practice we have we have like everybody else has been back out at
least in in their uniform but we haven’t even seen Ben back out here so you know
I think I think the depth might start to get tested a little bit and the fact
that they have Phillips in here working out kind of speaks to that I think I would agree alright check out all of our coverage of all things Saints in NOLA.com and in our print editions of the Tmes-Picayune
