New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees wasn’t at Saints camp yet Tuesday. He wrapped up his final workout in his off-field home base of San Diego. But he expressed his relief and excitement in a radio interview with WWL on Tuesday night
Softli says his “gut feeling” is still that the Rams will “lean towards” free agent Darren Sproles over Bush, but only if the Saints find a way to restructure his contract and bring Bush back. Softli has few further details on St. Louis’ interest in Burress. The Rams obviously can’t sign for Bush until he’s released, and released he almost certainly will be by Thursday. Burress is an unrestricted free agent available to the top bidder
Veteran linebacker Scott Shanle’s future with the Saints has been in question since the 2010 season ended. The 31-year old linebacker is an unrestricted free agent this year, and the Saints have some young linebackers waiting in the wings to overtake him on the depth chart.
