The Saints hold their training camp sessions in West Virginia, but they are up higher in elevation in comparison to the home turf in New Orleans. With the team up in the mountains, the players and the other people that travel with the team like owner Tom Benson have to adapt to the elevation change. Hopefully the 84-year-old owner is doing well in the hospital right now. Our prayers are with him.
