Reggie Bush is gone but Drew Brees is still around. So if you’re looking for a quick glimpse of NFL action, make your way to Oxnard, where the New Orleans Saints are making an unexpected pit stop this week for a weeklong training camp.

Practice Thursday and Friday is at 4 p.m. If you’re looking for autographs, you might want to be in place a few minutes earlier. The practices have been lasting a couple of hours.

Directions: North on the 101 toward Ventura, exiting Vineyard. Left on Vineyard. Training camp is 1.5 miles down Vineyard, just past Ventura Road. It is the same River Ridge complex that the Dallas Cowboys have used in the past.

Admission is free.

NFL camps are one of the few opportunities to see players up close, without paying an arm and a leg and another arm for games seats. There are bleachers at the Oxnard complex, or take a blanket and camp out in the shady end zone. About 1,500 turned out to practices earlier in the week.
