Missing minicamp and Organized Team Activities wasn’t a problem for Drew Brees.

Saints coach Joe Vitt said after watching Brees at the first training camp practice that he looks as good as ever after lengthy contract negotiations that kept him away from the team.

“Outstanding,” Vitt said of Brees. “I don’t think anybody’s eyes lied to them. You guys were here and saw the practice. Excellent tempo, excellent ball location, in and out of the huddle, up and down, on and off. Outstanding.”

The Saints moved practice indoors because of rain in New Orleans, so fans weren’t able to see Brees with their own eyes. But Saints fans will like Vitt’s description. Brees is ready to go.
