Brees: Mindset has always been to stay a Saint

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees says he doesn't plan on testing the free-agent market this offseason and that his mindset is what it's always been, "and that's that I'll be here."

Saints punter Thomas Morstead said he was diagnosed with torn cartilage, not broken ribs. Said it bruised his ego because it "doesn't sound as cool," but doctors assured him it hurts just as much. Said he felt better after a local shot, but it still hurt to punt. But he said he figured a bad punt would hurt just as much as a good punt, so he might as well hit some good ones.

Saints' Williams vows not to let play define him

Sean Payton and the Saints coaching staff will coach the NFC Pro Bowl team, the league announced Monday -- the first time they've done so since Payton's first year on the job after the 2006 season. Mike Tomlin and the Steelers staff will coach the AFC squad. Payton shouldn't have much trouble getting familiar with his roster, since the Saints sent six players to the Pro Bowl this year (QB Drew Brees, RBs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, WR Michael Thomas, DE Cameron Jordan and CB Marshon Lattimore).
