In the 3 seasons Alex Anzalone has been with the Saints the linebacker has been on the field for only 22 games due to season ending shoulder injuries that have followed him from college. The 25-year-old is entering a contact year and needs to show he can stay on the field in order to stay in New Orleans.
“I do think I have a lot more in my game that I haven't shown, “said Anzalone. “I think I was starting to hit my stride in training camp last year but you know, I think there's a lot more I can show on film and show the league what I'm capable of."

Training camp is really just starting to get cranked up. Players have been practicing in helmets and shells after having to pass through COVID testing. Monday is when the pads finally come on as we are a month away from the season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
