Saints Workouts Different But The Same Without Brees, Payton
"It's going to be different until (Brees) gets here,'' Carmichael said. "But as far as what (Daniel and Canfield) have done, these first three days have been real positive. The ball stayed off the ground. For them, it's about assignments. Are they making the right decisions with the ball? Are they throwing to the right location?

Saints may cut back on blitzing in 2012 | wwltv.com New Orleans
The all-out blitzing the Saints unleashed during recent seasons appears to be a thing of the past under new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

"When I was going through the process and they said the Saints were interested in me, I only took one visit, and that was here,’’ Lofton said. "Up in Atlanta, I hated these guys. That is the rivalry, you hate each other. Once I got here, hanging around coach (Sean) Payton, (general manager) Mickey (Loomis), (assistant head coach Joe) Vitt, and coach Spags, it felt right,’’ Lofton said. "It was family. Before I made my decision, I called Harp (Roman Harper), I called Will (Smith), and they were very receptive. They talked to me and said 'Hey, we need you. Come be a part of something great.'"

"We don’t care where the pressure comes from. We’ll bring it from all different directions," Spagnuolo said. "You win up front, offensively and defensively. There will be an emphasis on winning up front first, both on the run and the pass, and I think we have guys that can do that."

Daily Special, May 25, 2012 - Who Dat Social Club
You’re an idiot, Czarnecki. And Benson, you’re an idiot too, if you don’t get Brees signed. Because here’s the real bottom line: it doesn’t matter how well, or poorly, Brees might play for any other team. He’s not going to be playing for any other team: he’s going to be playing for the New Orleans F***ing Saints, for the rest of his career if we’re lucky.

De Smith points to absence of bounty evidence | ProFootballTalk
"We have not seen one piece of evidence that would show that one of those players got paid to target a player and injure him and get him out of the game," Smith said.

Four weeks later, 174 draft picks are signed | ProFootballTalk
Not every team has decided to accelerate the process. The Cowboys, Saints, Raiders, Jaguars, and Rams have signed none of their picks, and only 10 of 32 first-rounders are under contract.
