Patriots Looking Forward to Joint Practices With Saints Before Preseason OpenerThe Patriots will get a chance to escape some of the monotony that is training camp when they welcome in the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints for joint practices this week.

The two teams will work out together leading up to the preseason opener for both teams on Aug. 12 at Gillette Stadium.

NESN.com's Jeff Howe explained on Sunday's episode of NESN Daily that the opportunity to practice with another team could be a welcomed change for the Patriots. 

"With the Saints coming in you're going to see a lot more passion, a lot of fire," he said. "More than anything, you're going to get two teams that have been hitting themselves for the first two weeks of camp, now they get a chance to hit guys in some other uniforms. It's going to be a lot of fun out there."
