Loomis: Virus uncertainty doesn’t alter Saints’ high goals
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints general manager Mickey Loomis says unusual circumstances surrounding this pandemic-altered NFL season haven’t changed high expectations; the Saints seek a fourth-straight playoff appearance. Loomis says it’s an advantage that he and coach Sean Payton have worked together since 2006 and that there has been little turnover on the staff or roster recently. Loomis spoke Tuesday evening after veterans reported for training camp and underwent coronavirus testing. Loomis says there were no positive tests when rookies reported Monday and he’s waiting for Tuesday’s results. But reserve tight ends Cole Wick and Jason Vander Laan have opted out of this season.
