The New Orleans Saints have reported to camp and it is uncharted territory for the team, but Drew Brees is, "excited for the unknown, because we don't know what to expect. There's no greater opportunity in front of us." Here's a few selected stories from around the country on Drew Brees, the New Orleans Saints and training camp:
"The minute I got off the phone, I changed Bowen's poopy diaper," Brees said Tuesday in his first press conference after the Saints reported for training camp. "I then went downstairs, and I did a load of whites in the washer. And then I went upstairs and put Baylen's lunch away in the refrigerator. So nothing changed."
You wouldn't think a team that's won 37 games the last three years, a team that just signed its franchise quarterback to a record-setting deal, a team that set so many records would be this low. But this has been no ordinary offseason for the New Orleans Saints.
In the wake of the bounty scandal, Brees held things together the way he usually does -- by being a family man, and as the primary leader of his team.
There aren't many players in today's NFL who know how to deliver a message -- whether that be to the union, teammates or the media -- better than Drew Brees.
"With all this stuff swirling around us, in the end, all we can worry about is what we can control. ... I know the type of guys we have. I know the coaches we have. I'm excited to watch it all come together."
