It's been a few weeks since Drew Brees officially announced his retirement. While I'm sure Saints Sean Payton knew it was coming he opened up about how it hasn't really hit him yet...

“We’re not there yet because we haven’t had any practices, we haven’t turned around with something coming up where we’re like, That’s something Drew would’ve handled. We haven’t had that moment yet,” Payton told Albert Breer of

“I’m sure there’ll be a few of them. But it’s a young team, that’s what’s exciting. . . . I think it’ll be different the first time we have an OTA, the first time we have a minicamp or the first time we get into training camp,” Payton added. “It hasn’t hit you quite yet because you haven’t done anything football-related. You’re involved in draft work, free-agent work. I’m sure there’ll be a couple stages to it where it’s the first meeting, first practice and so on.”
