The Saints are in the fourth week of lockout workouts, organized by quarterback Drew Brees. In a new video posted today by the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Mike Triplett interviews Brees regarding the workouts. Brees, pictured with rookie running back Mark Ingram in a photo posted on Twitter by Jason Bernos of SaintsBlog.com, talked initially about the experiences of the fans who won via raffle the ability to work out with the players at Tulane’s facilities.
Turning to the team itself, Brees said that the Saints “have a plan” and “a purpose” during the workouts, which have been attended by roughly 40 members of the team.
Our favorite quote from Brees was this one: “We just continue to modify and escalate the type of training we’re doing to be even more football-specific and that kind of thing as we close in on June and get ready for training camp.”
This statement implies that there will be a training camp, something that gives us all reason for hope during an offseason that has been littered with feelings of football hopelessness.
