Saints News, 6/26/15: Drew Brees: “Pieces in place” for best Saints team yet

New, comments

From ProFootballTalk.com: “I feel like we can build it. Yeah,” Brees said to Ed Werder of ESPN, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “Listen there’s a lot of work to be done. I’m not going to sit here in June and say that where we need to be. We still have a lot of work to do. I do feel like we have all the pieces in place. We have the ability to build the best team that we’ve had. It’s not easy. It takes a lot of work, a ton of work. As long as we can maintain that mindset that we will continue to get better each and every day then we’ve got a shot.”
