Observations from New Orleans Saints training camp practice on Monday, Aug. 31, from the indoor practice facility at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center:

  1. PEAT APPEARANCE: Pro Bowl left guard Andrus Peat was dressed for the full-pads practice Monday, the first time Peat has been dressed for practice in training camp. He didn't participate in team drills – he did some conditioning work on the side – but having him back in uniform and on the field is a positive step toward the regular season.
  2. WELCOME COMMITTEE: The tradition for new Saints defensive players is for them to do up-downs prior to practice, circled by teammates. That was the penance for defensive ends Anthony Lanier II and T.J. Carter, and linebacker Wynton McManis on Monday.
  3. BELIEVE IT: All the good things you've heard or seen written about cornerback Patrick Robinson – believe them. P-Rob has been that good in training camp. In one-on-one drills Monday, he forced an incompletion with outstanding coverage, then had a pass breakup in the red zone. Robinson is healthy, and he looks very capable of playing outside corner or sliding inside to play nickel.
