On a nice warm Sunday afternoon, the New Orleans Saints were practicing at the facility on Airline Drive in front of more than five thousand fans. The Cajun Cannon and I were under our WWL tent right next to the Saints weight room checking out practice.

Then, we had a chance to liven up the show with a very entertaining interview with Saints Executive Vice President and General Manager Mickey Loomis. The 40+ minute interview included Loomis talking about the Saints’ busy off-season, the Drew Brees contract, his relationship with Sean Payton, and working for Mr. Tom Benson.

“It was an eventful off -season. But we feel like we made some good moves to upgrade our roster,” Loomis told us.
One of the first things we asked Mickey was how difficult it was to put together the most lucrative contract in league history for QB Drew Brees.

Mickey Loomis doesn't get enough recognition for the things he does besides just working on contracts.
He is the one responsible for bringing Sean Payton to New Orleans.
In Loomis I trust!

Good point RS. If anyone thinks it's not going to hurt the Saints not having him around they are mistaken. You have to have a good GM.

It's like that duck gliding across the pond, it looks easy and gracerful but what you don't see are those feet flappin' throught the dirty water.
