The New Orleans Saints have released their 2016 training camp schedule, a slate that includes trips to West Virginia, to Foxboro, Mass., back to West Virginia, down to Houston and finally to Metairie.

New Orleans will have 22 practices open to the public, including five in Metairie after the Saints return home from the Aug. 20 preseason game against the Texans.

By setting up two joint practices against the Patriots and Texans, the Saints will have two showcase sessions against other teams, sessions that often bring out the best in players and break up the monotony of training camp.
