TWEETS:

Today was last day of my first OTA's... About this season... Now it's time for some vacation time...

"For the first time in my life I felt like I could make a difference," Vitt says of joining Saints staff as Payton's first hire.

Looking forward to putting those pads on. B here no time, OTA's was just the beginning of great things to come this season... .

Lions RB Mikel Leshoure suspended two games for violating substance abuse policy.

Just finished last OTA of year! I feel like school's out for summer! Little break before the season starts.

So...how bout that whole Drew Brees thing? Sure hope he signs and plays and stuff

Ha! RT : Daniel said if this were regular season, he'd be playing.

Wait. So all these commercials are a debate whether to call an Arnold Palmer a Drew Brees or a Michael Waltrip? IT'S AN ARNOLD PALMER

Also, tea/lemonade is gross, and Country Time isn't lemonade, it's artificially-flavored sugarwater. Thanks for listening.

This could be true RT tea and lemonade is delicious if it's not made with nasty country time garbage

BREAKING: Daniel tells WWL Brees contract won't get done RT : Daniel said if this were regular season, he'd be playing

Sadly, I can't put that Daniel quote where I want to

I know it's- "Mother Earth & Father Time" But would that make Summertime like a crazy fun uncle?

RT Last day of OTAs with the team... Got some resting and training to do before THE GRIND

And what I've been saying all along. RT : Brees deal is expected to go down to the July 16 wire

& what bloggers have been saying since March. RT : what I've been saying all along. RT :deal to go down to wire

Check out patting himself on the back for having a firm grasp of the obvious. Can we get a big round of applause?

": Saints DE Greg Romeus Tears ACL & MCL " If anyone needs me I'll be in my room... /hangs self

I hope Ronaldo's Giucci shoes get ruined tonight. The gel wearing, fauxhawk havin' asshat.

Attn crybags: Grow a pair already. Sticks & stones. RT : WSJ reveals worst aspect of social media:

Athlete: I knew when I established my social marketing presence to increase awareness of ME, I'd get sassback. But this is just TOO MUCH!

Bold statement.... RT : VItt said this might be the most talent the team has had yet.

Vitt: If we're gonna do something that's never been done before, we're gonna have to do something that's never been done before.

VItt says o-line coach Aaron Kromer thinks this might be best crop of rookie offensive linemen yet here.

BREAKING: sources tell me Brees contract talks stalled over pre game chant issues. Loomis to include "Cut That S*** Out" clause. Retweeted by

I'd say rookie WR Nick Toon was the biggest standout of summer practices among young newcomers. Impressive build, hands.

Done with the offseason practices!!! Off till training camp. The true grind begins!

Funny thing happened to me this morning. For some reason, I didn't feel any less up on current events than I did the previous morning. WTF?

INCREDIBLY FUNNY BECAUSE IT'S SO TRUE:

Dear ESPN: Your Movie-Tie-In Promos Suck
You feel like you've been dropped into some kind of eternal time loop where the game will NEVER begin. Every time they ran an intro and then cut to Wilbon and Magic and Jon Barry and Other Guy, I felt so defeated. It was like sitting at a bus station waiting to be picked up and seeing 50 cars pass by that look like your dad's but aren't.
