METAIRIE, La. The Saints announced Thursday the team's June 4-6 minicamp will be open to the public.

Gates open each day at 9:30 a.m. and fans are asked to enter the facility through the gate located at the corner of Elise Drive and Airline Highway. Parking is available in the Zephyr Field parking lot.

The annual mandatory minicamp will be fans' first chance to see the latest version of the team. It's also their first time seeing first-year defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in action.

Additionally, coach Sean Payton will be on the field in front of fans for the first time since last coaching the Saints in the playoffs two seasons ago.

Practices will go from 10:15 a.m. until 12:45 p.m. Practices could be moved to the indoor facility should inclement weather move in, in which case, the session would be closed to the public.
