The Saints have re-signed their former WR/KR Tommylee Lewis to a reserve/futures contract after he spent last year away from the team. His path to a roster spot will be much more difficult this time around, though, after first-team All Pro kick returner Deonte Harris was so good for the Saints as an undrafted rookie. The Saints have also talked about using Harris more on offense next year.

Future Pro Football Hall of Famer Drew Brees gives his thoughts on the Chiefs and 49ers: "We're talking about a super explosive offense...Mahomes' ability just to make plays when there's nothing there…the challenge that the 49ers present is that they have an excellent front seven, and lots of subbing in that can play ball too. And then their back end is very good. So there's no weak link on that defense..."

Drew Brees offers his thoughts on the Chiefs and 49ers: "We're talking about a super explosive offense – with all those weapons. Mahomes' ability just to make plays when there's nothing there…the challenge that the 49ers present is that they have an excellent front seven, and lots of subbing in that can play ball too. And then their back end is very good. So there's no weak link on that defense."

Jared Cook was very complimentary of the way both the Chiefs and 49ers get their tight ends involved with Travis Kelce and George Kittle. "Big guys that run well, run well after the catch, run well after first contact. That's gonna be tough because both of them are key in their offensive production."

I asked Drew Brees when he anticipates making a decision about next year: "We'll see. We'll see." Cam Jordan believes he'll be back. "At the end of the day, Drew has always this is home for him — New Orleans has been home for him. So until he says otherwise, I'm gonna keep believing he's our quarterback."

Stories behind every Super Bowl ring

They're big and small. They've been lost while surfing in Hawaii and dancing at Studio 54. They've been found in taxis and hotel nightstands. Each ring, and its wearer, has a unique story to tell.
