Gruden's special on Saints airs Tuesday

8/23/2010

There will be some must-see television for New Orleans Saints fans Tuesday. ESPN will air a one-hour special called Gruden’s Champ Camp at 7 p.m. ET. It will also re-air at 11 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

Jon Gruden the former coach and current ESPN analyst was out at Saints camp when I was in early August and he got to spend a lot of time with coach Sean Payton and Drew Brees -- that’s a trio of some of the greatest offensive minds of our generation.

Gruden was given great access because he and Payton are old buddies and used to coach together as assistants in Philadelphia. The show also will feature audio of Payton who wore a microphone on the first day of training camp and there’s going to be some rare video of Gruden and Payton from back when they were with the Eagles.

I’m looking forward to seeing this one more than any of the preseason games.
