While much of the NFL buzz at the moment is surrounding OTAs, the league provided some light-hearted content this week when it asked rookies to paint their teams' logos from memory.

Among those taking part were a pair of new Saints – quarterback Jake Haener and running back Kendre Miller.

It seems none of those selected to take part were included because of their artistic abilities, and most of the paintings were as rudimentary as they come. 

You would think the Saints' fleur-de-lis would be among the easier NFL logos to reproduce, but both Haener and Miller struggled in their attempts.

"I was way off," Miller laughed.

Haener, who has already shown that he has got a lighter side, described his painting as a "It's like the draft, ya know?"

Later, they surprised the players with t-shirts featuring the logos that they painted.

When Haener opened the box and found his logo on the shirt, he muttered, "Damn it."

Haener's take on the Saints logo was actually sideways on the shirt.

"Could they not tell?" he asked. "It was that bad?"
