NEW ORLEANS - The Saints opened their offseason, mandatory mini-camp Tuesday out on Airline Drive with several fans and many players in attendance. However, the one guy who wasn't there was on just about everyone's mind.
While fans of the team have been confident that a new contract for Drew Brees will eventually get done, most are getting a little antsy as the calendar for training camp approaches and it still isn't done. Both management and Brees and his agent have been good about keeping negotiations out of the media and that means little news on the issue. This is one instance where no news isn't necessarily good news.
Saints mini-camp without Drew Brees is like Cafe du Monde without beignets.
