Drew Brees said he took a little more family time than usual to decompress after the way last season ended. When asked for his mindset heading into this summer, the Saints QB said: "You always try to take your experiences from the year before and turn it into something positive. Momentum, motivation, chip on your shoulder, unfinished business — whatever you want to term it, there's something to prove."

The Saints signed two veteran offensive lineman Wednesday. And both could compete for backup jobs, since New Orleans could use a little more experienced depth on the line. OT Marshall Newhouse is a 10th-year veteran who has started 72 games in his career with the Packers, Bengals, Giants, Raiders, Bills and Panthers. C Ryan Groy has started 17 games in five years with the Bears and Bills. The Saints also signed second-year S Terrell Williams Jr. and released veteran OT Derek Newton, G Mike Herndon and WR Micah Wright.

The Saints finally added a veteran DE – Wes Horton, who started eight games last year for the rival Panthers and started a total of 35 games over the past six years with 15.5 sacks. Horton, a 6-foot-5, 265-pounder who was undrafted out of USC in 2013, will add depth behind projected starters Cameron Jordan and Marcus Davenport. It was New Orleans' most glaring remaining need after losing former starter Alex Okafor in free agency this year.

Chiefs safety and New Orleans native Tyrann Mathieu hosted his fourth annual "Heart of a Badger" football camp Sunday at the Saints' practice facility. Mathieu, who hosted a weekend of events that included a "Taste of New Orleans" welcome party and a celebrity kickball game, said it's important for him to give back to a community that supported him so much during some turbulent times in his life. "First and foremost, I embody everything that is New Orleans, that is Louisiana," said Mathieu, who said the city has dealt with a lot of adversity and had to overcome and build back "like me."

Rookie Alize' Mack is fired up about joining the Saints' offense. "Where else would you want to be as a tight end?" said the seventh-round draft pick from Notre Dame, adding that Drew Brees is a "beast."

The Saints signed 10 players who tried out during last weekend's rookie minicamp, including veteran DT Sylvester Williams, who was a first-round draft pick by the Broncos in 2013. They also signed WRs Cyril Grayson Jr. and Micah Wright, RB A.J. Ouellette, FB Michael Burton, C Marcus Henry, OT Ulrick John, DL Geneo Grissom, LB Colton Jumper and DB David Simmons Jr. The Saints released RB Darnell Holland, DL Tomasi Laulile and CB Darius Williams.

We got a brief glimpse of the Saints' rookies during Saturday's rookie minicamp practice. Safeties Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Saquon Hampton both had highlight moments. Gardner-Johnson , a fourth-round pick from Florida, intercepted a pass during individual drills. Then he tipped a pass in full-team drills that was intercepted by Hampton, a sixth-round pick from Rutgers. Another highlight was a terrific contested catch by undrafted Texas receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey.

It's been a great two weeks for new Saints center Erik McCoy, who got drafted with the 48th pick then proposed to his longtime girlfriend the next day. McCoy has a great opportunity to step in right away as New Orleans' starter following the retirement of Max Unger. But he deftly brushed off a question after Saturday's rookie minicamp practice about whether he expects significant playing time as a rookie. "I'm just looking to come in and compete," said McCoy, who described New Orleans offense as a "really good fit." "I'm loving the scheme so far. I'm still learning, still making mistakes, and I've got a long way to go. But I'm definitely loving the scheme."
