NEW ORLEANS — Drew Brees launched a high throw down the middle of the field and into the end zone, where second-year tight end Jimmy Graham leapt to grab it over his back shoulder, out of reach of the nearest defender.

That’s the kind of timing play the Saints were able to hone during six weeks of player-organized workouts at Tulane. Those sessions are coming to an end this week. The plan now is to treat what would normally be vacation time as exactly that, and hope that their next gathering is back at team headquarters for training camp in late July with an NFL labor agreement in place.

Brees said Wednesday that a sense of optimism that NFL lockout’s end was nearing has spread among the players working out at Tulane this week, in light of reports that representatives of owners and players were meeting and making progress. Yet he also warned his teammates not to take anything for granted.

“I tell them there’s a lot of hypotheticals. I just try to prepare the guys — hope for the best, prepare for the worst,” Brees said. “And that’s been what we’ve had to do this whole time.”
