Saints Nation: OTA's complete, Saints headed for vacation

The Saints have one final practice this morning, and then they'll take some much deserved time off till training camp which commences on July 30th. With the exception of Stanley Arnoux (Achilles tendon tear) and Alex Fletcher (kidney issue), who are both out for the season, the Saints escaped OTA's relatively healthy with only a few bumps and bruises. The rest of the team should be full go, or close to, by the start of training camp.

Word is practice this morning has already been moved indoors with a heat index of 110 degrees. Yikes!

Per Twitter:

Jeremy Shocker, claims "otas are going great" and that he hit the town last night. Hopefully he stayed hydrated. He's headed to Miami for the vacation.

Malcolm Jenkins and Chip Vaughn were out with teammates last night for "Rookie Night". Not sure what that's all about, but based on the amount of rookie hazing they've complained about this week we can all imagine lots of scenarios .

Darren Sharper is pointing out that being an NFL player is a 10 month out of the year job.
