    It was a lively practice at Yulman Stadium, plenty of Saints fans in attendance. The highlight of the night had to be 2-minute drill, where the defense dominated, after intercepting Drew Brees two different times. Sean Payton: It was good. We talked the other night just about turnovers. Turning turnovers into points. There's been a handful of teams in our league history that's had a lot of scoring plays on defense.

    Drew Brees will be suiting for his 18th season in the league this fall, and it's clearly obvious he's still got the "it" factor. This offseason, No. 9 inked a new 2-year deal with the Saints, but the time to hang up the cleats is closing in.  "I've had real conversations with my wife over the last couple of years.

It hasn’t really happened with the Saints all that much. I can only think of one practice so far that lacked energy. Today, the team did red zone and two-minute which are two pretty intense installs.
