Saints' Drew Brees: Dealing with lawsuit

Brees missed some spring practices while dealing with a lawsuit against a California jeweler, Rod Walker of The New Orleans Advocate reports.

Given his wealth of experience in coach Sean Payton's offense, Brees shouldn't be impacted by a few missed practice sessions in May and June. He's once again set up with an excellent situation, as the Saints replaced Mark Ingram with Latavius Murray and added pass-catching tight end Jared Cook to replace Benjamin Watson. The team lost starting center Max Unger to retirement, but acquired two potential replacements with upside in free-agent signee Nick Easton and second-round pick Erik McCoy. With Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk locked in at the tackle spots, Brees should still be well protected as he looks to rebound from a modest finish to the 2018 campaign. A healthier season from Ted Ginn and continued development from Tre'Quan Smith could lead to a more balanced passing game that isn't as dependent on quick passes to Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara.
