METAIRIE, La. (AP) - Saints assistant head coach Joe Vitt says he has talked to Drew Brees about preparations for training camp and expects the star quarterback to be back with the team by then.


When asked why he's confident Brees will be back, Vitt says, "what else is he going to do? He can't sing or dance."


Brees is holding out for a new long-term contract. Vitt says everyone knows the type of deal Brees wants can be complicated and take time to complete.


The Saints have until July 16th to sign Brees to a new long-term deal. Otherwise, he has to play under the one-year franchise tag which the Saints have placed on him to prevent him leaving.


Brees has skipped the first six offseason practices held this week and last.
