Now that Drew Brees has agreed to a five-year, $100 million contract , the New Orleans Saints -- and Iím talking players, coaches, owner Tom Benson, everyone else who works for the team and all of Who Dat Nation -- finally can start moving on.

Yes, thereís going to be some sense of ďthe new normalíí in a season in which coach Sean Payton and linebacker Jonathan Vilma are suspended for the year, interim head coach Joe Vitt must hand off his temporary title for the first six games and general manager Mickey Loomis must step aside for the first eight. But simply having Brees happy and showing up for training camp provides a huge degree of normalcy, and thatís going to make a big difference.

Since his arrival in New Orleans with a chip on his shoulder in 2006, Brees has made the Saints look like a model franchise. No organization is perfect, and fans have found out plenty that they didnít want to know about the Saints this offseason. But problems in New Orleans go back further than that. The defense wasnít very good in Breesí early years in New Orleans. In 2009, Payton brought in Gregg Williams to fix it. On the surface, Williams did. The Saints won a Super Bowl that season. But not everything was spectacular behind the scenes. Payton and Williams never were the best of friends, and that led to dysfunction that was masked nicely until the whole bounty drama unfolded.

That dysfunction was masked almost exclusively by one man -- Brees.

I hope he's hitting the weights because it's all resting on his shoulders.

I couldn't think of a better player or person to put that on...
