Brees, Team Hopeful For New NFL Labor Agreement
NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees said workouts he organized with Saints teammates at Tulane are ending this week and that there’s hope that their next gathering will be at Saints headquarters with a new NFL labor agreement in place.
Brees said he’s encouraged by progress in labor negotiations between representatives of players and owners. He said that if a deal is reached soon, the decision by Saints players to train together during the lockout will have paid off because they were able to work productively on formations and plays.
The six weeks of workouts were meant to mimic what they’d normally do at team headquarters, and now they’re taking what would have been regularly scheduled vacation with the hope of starting training camp on time on July 27.]]]]> ]]> See a typo? Report it here.
