FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — The New Orleans Saints arrived during a Florida rainstorm Monday afternoon. Practice was moved indoors, to a different location, and the Saints had to put on their full gear at the team hotel before taking a one-hour bus ride to the Miami Dolphins’ facility.
For the team from the town that is still coping with the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, this downpour was hardly worthy of a single umbrella.
“Weather the storm,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said late Monday afternoon. “We know how to do that.”
