NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - The Saints and Chargers met up for Day 1 of their dual workouts in California, and they didn’t disappoint.

The practice started with 1-1 drills between receivers and cornerbacks. Saints’ Tre’Quan Smith went a perfect 3-3 in this drill.

Undrafted rookie Emmanuel Butler possibly produced the catch of the day during the same practice period. Butler was dealing with blanket coverage, but still hauled in the pass.

The Saints defense had an up-and-down day against Philip Rivers. P.J. Williams picked the veteran QB in 11-11 drills. But later on, Rivers connected with Travis Benjamin for a touchdown.

Coach Payton thought the practice was productive, and most importantly no major injuries.
