TEAMS: New Orleans Saints
New-orleans-saints

Drew Brees offseason contract dispute with the Saints hasn't dampened his desire to be a good teammate, or to take care of his team's fans who have been braving the heat and rain to come out to Saints training camp. On Saturday fans were treated to free Plum Street Snoballs as Brees had arranged for a truck to come to practice.

"It was funny because a few days before camp, it was a hot, New Orleans summer day and we were at Audubon Park just playing on the swings there and thought to get the boys some snoballs at Plum Street," Brees said. "We drove on over and at the time their catering truck was headed out to go somewhere. I asked if they would come out to training camp and take care of the fans and they said, 'Absolutely.' Especially the first weekend, when a lot of fans couldn't be here and watch us practice, it got rained out the first two practices. I just wanted to do something special for them, just cool them off on a hot summer day while they watch their boys play football."

Brees paid for all the Snoballs that the fans enjoyed and his teammates got in the action too, enjoying their own Snoballs at the close of practice.

Drew Brees On Roger Goodell: “Nobody Trusts Him”

We aren’t going to think that Drew Brees’ feelings towards NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has anything to do with the penalties the Saints faced or Head Coach Sean Payton’s suspension, this has to be rational.

Saints Nation: Adrian Arrington Not Going Away Easily So Far in Camp

It's still very early in camp but all accounts suggest Adrian Arrington is having a fantastic one so far. The departure of Robert Meachem to the Chargers this offseason has opened the door wide for someone to step up and become the Saints' fourth receiver. Arrington's ability to hang around the roster appeared to be coming to an end with the emergence of Joe Morgan last...

Roaf's road to HOF paved by 13 years of honors

Willie Roaf might have missed out on a whopping 11 Pro Bowls had he been 2 inches taller.

Roaf says if he had been 6-7, he probably would have kept playing basketball in college, but instead took one of only two scholarship...

Saints focused on mastering Spagnuolo's scheme

With most of the roster set, Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt decided to move practices to the mornings, in part to make sure the team is getting in full sessions. It's back to more of the normal training camp routine after it made more sense to have afternoon practices last year with so much turnover following the end of the lockout and quick start to camp. "This...
