Top plays, notes, quotes and more from Thursday's action.
Keenan Allen made a ridiculous one-handed snare during 7-on-7s. It was part of a monster day by KA13 which featured numerous TD catches, as well as a juke that broke the defender's ankles at the line of scrimmage on a quick strike.
Jason Verrett made a full extension dive to deflect a ball out of bounds in the back of the end zone.
Tyrell Williams hauled in bullet from Philip Rivers before turning on the jets for a big gain down the field.
Corey Liuget tipped the ball at the line of scrimmage, and Desmond King raced under it and took it 80-ish yards to the house.
Artavis Scott caught a leaping touchdown on a deep ball early in practice. He ended it with another nifty grab on a back shoulder fade in the corner of the end zone.
Joey Bosa lived in the backfield, recording multiple sacks.
Geremy Davis made a diving grab between Saints.
Jahleel Addae raced in for a sack of Drew Brees.
Jatavis Brown weaved his way into the backfield for a tackle for loss.
Chris McCain, Melvin Ingram and Joey Bosa converged on Drew Brees at the same time for a sack.
Dwight Lowery recorded a pick for the second straight day, leaping in front of Brandon Coleman for the interception.
Adrian Phillips stood strong at the one-yard line to keep the Saints out of the end zone.
James Onwualu set the edge nicely to funnel the action inside for a minimal gain by Adrian Peterson.
Branden Oliver had a nice gain up the right side.
Dontrelle Inman made a catch over tight coverage from a Saints defender.
Ricky Henne's Take:Keenan Allen was the clear-cut star of the joint practice, but Artavis Scott wasn't far behind. The undrafted rookie out of Clemson has authored some acrobatic catches throughout camp, but really showed out against the Saints. Not only did he catch a deep bomb for a score, but he made a picture-perfect adjustment on a back shoulder fade in the end zone for six. On the other side of the ball, Joey Bosa was once again a one-man wrecking ball. He overpowered the offensive line to repeatedly pester Drew Brees.

*"Made it through with no fights. A good, clean practice. A lot of good teaching tape. Exactly what I expected from a Sean Payton team. A lot of good character guys and hard workers."– *Head Coach Anthony Lynn
*"I'm getting my groove back. I'm feeling comfortable right now. The game and the speed is coming back to me."– Wide Receiver Keenan Allen *
*"From day one, just watching the quickness of (Melvin Gordon's) feet. Obviously, he has nice size and is very explosive, (but) I didn't realize how fast he was. Once we got on the track, I was able to see how fast he was. He has some real good speed."– *Saints Running Back Adrian Peterson
