METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints are planning to keep their training camp in West Virginia after recent flooding in the state killed at least 23 people.
The team says in a statement it has been in contact with officials at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs and it still plans to hold training camp at the facility beginning on July 27.
In Monday night's statement attributed to team executives Dennis Lauscha and Mickey Loomis, the Saints say they "will continue to monitor the situation and look for ways that our team/organization can contribute in a positive way while we are there this summer."
The team also says it is working with United Way to provide assistance for victims of the flooding.
