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."
