Tolerance agreement. Hollering and screaming at the saints can't. Gotta make cuts today at the last practice of training camp. You haven't seen the saints practiced yet want to you today's your last chance as we hear from Steve Geller and what Nancy. Good morning David and happy Tuesday everyone besieged rebel training camp today and also must trim on the roster to 75 players by 3 o'clock. Receiver -- has already among the team cuts and -- -- reporter Christian Derek says expect a linebacker Victor Butler to be let go later today. With this afternoon's practice being -- final day of training camp coach Sean Payton was asked if they start preparing for week one of the regular season yet. No we're not for an extra time in the Atlanta week. It's really fundamentals. So it's really more areas that we feel like we still need to work on. Today's practice is open to the public and starts at 11 AM. Cardinals safety to -- Matthew is close to making a quicker than expected return to the team. Matthew and inside linebacker Kevin -- are optimistic he'll be ready for Arizona season opener against San Diego. Matthews coming back from surgery to repair a torn ACL and LCL suffered during week fourteen last season. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and safety Eric Berry have returned to practice after dealing with injuries Barry missed most of the past couple of weeks with a heel injury. Charles has been out the past few pre season games after hurting his foot -- moving out of the dorms at chiefs training camp. Washington Redskins safety Brandon -- Mayweather. Has been suspended for the first two games of the regular season for -- too ahead of a receiver. UN FL announced the suspension saying it's the sixth time that meriwether has violated rules aimed at improving players' safety. -- -- has not been named yet LSU coach less miles the stated that both quarterbacks if -- Jennings and Brendan Harris. Will play in their season opener against Wisconsin. Miles that's how both perform we'll determine how long the team goes with eight to QB system. At some point -- time that guy would be our starter after he determined you know that it was an advantage to Eckstein to play him in all situations. From start to finish. That separation is not a Kirk. The tigers and -- kick off at 8 PM Saturday right here on WWL. Therefore on sports talk here from saints head coach Sean Payton in key players after the final day of training camp. Who will make it past the initial cuts I'm Steve Geller with your early morning look at sports. I'm 53 days -- on Steve Geller with you on your radio -- 11 o'clock this morning weather permitting. Fans can go out and see the saints practiced since the last chance you have to do that until next year. After the season is over because this is it after this they closed practice everything secret as they get ready for the race yet what would have -- -- today's temperatures are going to be like kind of weren't 1991. Heat index under comment -- last night that yesterday was gorgeous we have -- -- -- an overcast the breeze coming through so. That was a good practice yet for that it was a breeze coming through but there was no breeze on the field people are texting any news on Drew Brees he was a practice yesterday. I don't guess we should expect them to be at practice today -- -- wait to hear his daughter has been born. And if the fourth addition to the -- family has arrive -- looking forward to hearing about that and what the new babies named Shelby I know we had a run on these for a while until last. Boy three boys and now finally his first girl. She is going to be spoiled rotten he's only girl the youngest of all the children. You talk about difference. Well and I tell you the three boys they were going out and practiced with -- on Sunday they're all flight -- it all like oh man that poor girl is in force that. -- We'll be in for more sports in fifteen minutes here at WWL IMF now we'll take a look at your forecast if they had not saints camp this afternoon. After the. -- -- -- -- in for the next four hours on what you got coming up -- will be able to talk about. The saints bigger rivals in the NFL is that the traditional divisional one's door Eric -- from the 49ers say now its its teams and better would block each other from the suitable for example forty niners Seattle etc. yet to get pants so the question is is. Is the rivalry now bigger with the falcons -- the Seahawks I guess that's how I kind of picture or argue anymore -- the 49ers I think it's. And they get a win the division first and I think the real big rivals now because this internal -- team would be the other relief teams that we -- I can -- -- yadda let's -- -- -- talk about high schoolers get -- eight and a half hours of sleep. That's our yet. You plug this thing that. Yes -- two different stories now but it might be a I'll receive repeated it a victory not Monday folks Tommy's.
