Everything you need to know about yesterday's minicamp action on Airline Drive.

Forget digging through tons of stories and transcripts about the New Orleans Saints minicamp yesterday. Here's the abridged, bullet point version of all the action:

  • Delvin Breaux is still awesome. He's now the first team nickel cornerback because Kyle Wilson has been sucking. Breaux left practice early with trainer Scottie Patton.
  • Brandin Cooks is f***ing fast.
  • New defensive tackle Kevin Williams saw a bunch of snaps with the first team because Akiem Hicks and Brodrick Bunkley sat out.
  • John Carney will be hanging out with the two new kickers this week.
  • R.J. Harris had the catch of the day with a sweet diving reception.
  • Ben Watson is coming on strong in the push to be your starting tight end in 2015.
  • The Saints have brought in a punter (Chase Tenpenny), long snapper (Chris Highland), and a wide receiver (Matt James) on a tryout basis.
  • Davis Tull should be healthy and ready by training camp.
  • Nick Toon bobbled a pass that lead to an interception.
  • Steve Gleason was in attendance.
  • Official referees were also in attendance to answer questions.
  • Drew Brees didn't wear the glove he experimented with last week during OTAs.
  • Josh Morgan is now wearing No. 17.
  • C.J. Spiller will definitely be vying for the kickoff and punt return jobs.
  • Marques Colston didn't practice, but there's nothing wrong with him.
  • Junior Galette will hopefully be back to practice by training camp.
