Saints QB Garret Grayson had the opportunity of a lifetime
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Last year as a senior at Colorado State, Saints 2015 third-round draft pick Garrett Grayson received some vital words of wisdom from his idol, helping him become the 75th pick in the draft. The quarterback had been invited to participate in the annual Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana. It was there that he got to watch Peyton Manning perform drills and answer questions.

“We got to sit down in a room with him and Eli and just talk football, how they prepare for the game, what they’re looking for in defenses. So that was something I learned from, just to kind of be around him and see how he approaches everything, that meant a ton,” Grayson said, per ESPN.com. “You always hear about what a perfectionist he is, how seriously he takes every single drill. So to get to meet him and be around him and see that in person, I kind of learned from that and took that back.

“Looking back on my senior year, that’s another thing why I had so much success, because I wasn’t taking things like even a simple three-step drop for [granted]. I was serious with everything I did. So I’m definitely thankful for that opportunity.”

Saints' Drew Brees says young receivers keep him sharp
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Saints quarterback Drew Brees is 36 years old, but the team's young stable of wide receivers helps keep him fresh. 

"That's good. That creates a sense of urgency. And I like that. Because it kind of takes me back to basics, too," Brees said, per the Times Picayune. "All of a sudden I have to communicate and verbalize a route or a concept or a thought process in regards to something, so it just reiterates it to me, hey, what were the origins of this route and how have we developed it over time and how has it evolved? How have we gotten to this point?"
