New Orleans is holding its first three offseason practices, called organized team activities, Tuesday through Thursday. Those will also be the Saints' first practices under new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo. Without Drew Brees. Despite contract negotiation breakdowns, Saints players and general manager Mickey Loomis sound confident the star quarterback will return in time to have a productive season. Chase Daniel, who has been Brees' understudy for three seasons, has been penciled in as first-team QB until Brees is back. Let's hope things will work out in time for the 2012 season. I have confidence! WHO DAT!
