“This was actually one of the better days (down here)," he said. "It’s important to us because it’s training camp. You have to take advantage of it. It’s pretty humid. We got a pretty good workout in today.”
Coach Sean Payton said Sunday the team willl be smart with the climate change.
“The water breaks will be a little bit longer than they were for the first three weeks," he said. "It’s going to be important that we stay hydrated with our legs, getting in the cold tubs, all those things.”
“There’s nothing you can do about it. You just have to prepare for it," he said. "We’ll get out here and work hard tomorrow. Coach (Payton) was in it today. It will be hot tomorrow. The key is to hydrate over these next several hours and we’ll be alright.”
Armstead said no matter how many years you have practiced in New Orleans you can't get used to the conditions.
“You just have to work through, it’s part of it." he said, "and I think it allows you to go through tough times in an actual game.”
