Drew Brees wants to play until he's 45 -- seriously
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints quarterback Drew Brees, 35, wants to play another decade in the NFL.

"I'm serious. I'm not delusional," Brees said after practice Tuesday, per the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "I know that that's something that would be extremely difficult to do. Not many have done it. ... It could be done, but a lot of things have to fall into place."

Brees said his performance will determine how long he plays.

"I know it's one year at a time. It's, 'What have you done for me lately?'... But why not push the envelope a little bit?" Brees said. "It's certainly not going to be easy. I try to play this game like a kid. ... It is a serious business, and they don't keep you around if you don't play well."

Brandin Cooks on bubble screen equals touchdown
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints rookie receiver Brandin Cooks turned a bubble screen into a long touchdown Tuesday, the second time he's produced the top play in a training camp practice, reports the New Orleans Times Picayune.

With left tackle Terron Armstead opening up a hole, Cooks shot through and no one was catching him. "What's a certainty is that won't be the only screen pass [Drew] Brees will chuck at Cooks this season," the paper said.

Cooks also hauled in a 20-yard back shoulder throw from Brees, beating cornerback Champ Bailey. "It's a throw and catch that's challenging to perfect without much time together," the paper gushed. "Brees and Cooks made it look routine."

Nick Toon stating his case
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

In his battle with Joe Morgan and Robert Meachem for two roster spots, Saints receiver Nick Toon is making a strong early impression, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

"He's healthy. He's really running well. It was tough last year with the numbers of getting him into the rotation," coach Sean Payton told the paper. "This year I definitely see him as someone who competes and factors in for not only playing time, but for touches. He has done well these first few days."

Mark Ingram working primarily with first team
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Saints running back Mark Ingram spent most of Saturday's practice working with the first team, and coach Sean Payton referred to him as "one of our starters," reports the New Orleans Times Picayune. Pierre Thomas worked a lot with the reserves, the paper said.

Ingram is "a guy that we felt played very well in the last half of the season," Payton said. "It's a position where we obviously carry depth, because it's a position that gets nicked up in our game. (Ingram) is smart. He's tough. He runs with good pad level. So far, he's doing well."

Ingram will try to separate himself in a crowded backfield that includes Thomas, Khiry Robinson and Travaris Cadet.
