WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV (WVUE) -

Another training camp in West Virginia is complete for the Saints, leaving only one year left on their contract with The Greenbrier.

The Saints contract with The Greenbrier only lasts through 2016, but Coach Sean Payton feels the partnership could go further.

"I think that's going to happen fairly soon here and yet it's not a focal point right now just because of where we're at," Payton said. "I've said this before and I'll say it again, the setup for us facility-wise it works.  The facility setup works, but the real reason this whole thing flows so smoothly is because of the people."

As for the players, they're just glad this phase of camp is over with. None explained the sentiment better than veteran linebacker Parys Haralson.

"You want the real answer or the political answer? No, I'm not [going to miss the Greenbrier] - I'm ready to go home," Harylson said. "I'll probably miss this weather, I love the weather but sometimes, it's about time for a change of scenery. Sometimes, it's just being away from your own bed - that's the main thing for me. If I could have brought my bed, we could have stayed two more weeks."

Meanwhile, the New Orleans Pelicans just announced they will begin their 2015-16 season with a week at the Greenbrier for training camp before hitting the road for preseason games.

    Alvin Kamara did it all last season for Sean Payton's offense, and that's why he's No. 2 on our ranking the Saints countdown. Kamara burst onto the scene, mesmerized saints fans, and the entire NFL with his unique running style. His stat line, amazing: 728 yards rushing, averaged over six yards per carry, with  eight touchdowns. He also added 81 catches with five touchdowns. All the while playing just 45 percent of the Saints offensive snaps. Kamara ran away with the NFL's Off...more>>
