Saints quarterback Drew Brees on Thursday said he hadn’t completely vetted his team’s 2014 schedule, which was released less than a day earlier. Yet, Brees glanced at it long enough for the Week 1 opener at Atlanta as well as three prime-time games at Dallas, at Carolina and at Chicago to jump out at him as contests where the Saints are “going to see what kind of team we are,” he said during an interview with ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd.
