The New Orleans Saints continued organized team activities today in Metairie, La., and according to Drew Brees, the addition of former Tulane quarterback's coach Mike Neu, has been a smooth transition.
"It's a big comfort level with Mike. It's not like he's coming in and there's no familiarity at all," said Brees after practice.
Neu was a college scout for three years for New Orleans before taking the Tulane job in 2011.
"He sat in our meetings, so there's a report there. He's done a great job and I really just love our room."
Brees also said that having a veteran quarterback like Luke McCown on the sidelines helps him study opposing defenses.
"You kind of get a little tunnel vision when you're out there on the field and there's a perspective that's gained from somebody who's on the sideline or up in the box that can be very beneficial."
"I come to the sideline and [Luke] is there for me to be able to bounce things off of."
Head coach Sean Payton addressed the need to get wide receiver Kenny Stills more involved in the offense.
"He's a player that after the season finished last year I looked at and said that we've got to find a way to get him the ball more."
"His transition, his ability to stretch a field, but then sink his hips and get in and out of cuts is something that has really helped him and he's picked things up very quickly."
The final OTA session for the Saints concludes Saturday.
