Drew Brees described the offseason of the New Orleans Saints as the first normal one since 2009.

"It's all about football, and that's the way we like it," he said. "This is really the first normal offseason we've had in four years. Going from that offseason after Super Bowl, which was a crazy offseason, and right into the lockout the next offseason, and last year with the bounty and the contract and with everything else.

"Really, this is the first normal offseason we've had since '09, and that ended up being a pretty good year for us, so hopefully there's some foresight in there."
