Saints Gathering Draws Most PlayersMay 3rd, 2011
Of course, Joe hates the Saints and can’t wait for Adrian Clayborn to shatter Drew Brees’ face mask.
But Joe keeps track of all things Bucs-related, and in the world of lockout journalism, Saints players launching organized workouts in a big way is Bucs news. NFL.com reported a majority of Saints are attending the camp at Tulane University and caught Brees talking big.
“We have everything here we would have at our training facility. Guys were here in bigger numbers than even I expected,” Brees said.
He added: “The more organized you can be as a team, the more you can communicate during May, June, July, the better. None of us know how long (the lockout) is going to go on. This gives us the best position to be successful once the season does start.
“It helps when you have veteran guys like (safety Darren) Sharper, (linebacker Jonathan) Vilma, Stinchcomb showing up.”
Now Joe knows Josh Freeman worked out at USF recently with what Tampa Tribune beat writer Anwar Richardson reported were skill position players.
But this Saints stuff with 37 guys showing up and private trainers, and covered by NFL.com, is enough to start Joe wondering when Freeman will round up the rest of the team and do something similar.
Get’em out there Josh.
