No rust on Brees for 1st day of Training Camp
Brees even decided his first practice following a months-long contract holdout was as good a time as any to throw deep.
"I said, `Hey, we're going throw some balls down the field that maybe we shouldn't today, but let's just go make some plays,'" Brees said.
If only the fans who'd lined up to get into Thursday evening's opening training camp session could have seen it.
Lightning in the area led the Saints to move the practice indoors, where space is limited and only so many guests can watch.

For Brees, who recently inked a five-year, $100 million contract, the practice also marked his first chance to work against a scheme installed by new defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.
It started off well for the offense, with Lance Moore diving to snag a long passed that was tipped by Malcolm Jenkins.
"The receivers caught some long balls on us today," said assistant head coach Joe Vitt, who is also the linebackers coach.
Vitt said the defensive backs were in pretty good position but followed coaches' orders not to challenge receivers too aggressively because players were not in full pads.
