Thank you Morstead !

Mickey Loomis announced today that the club has terminated the contract of punter Thomas Morstead.

Morstead, 6-4, 235 pounds, spent the last 12 seasons in Black and Gold after being selected in the fifth round of the 2009 NFL Draft out of SMU. A team captain since 2013, he made an immense contribution both on the field with the organization and with the local community.

Alvin Kamara will be there at Saturday’s NASCAR race — and so will the car he sponsored

A member of Ryan Vargas’ team had to stop the young NASCAR driver in his tracks this week to make sure he understood exactly what words just came out of his mouth.

Vargas had a photo of his No. 6 Chevrolet Camaro decked out in orange and red and purple with The Big Squeezy logos all over it. He off-handedly mentioned to nobody in particular that he was going to text the photo to New Orleans Saints star running back Alvin Kamara, who’d agreed to sponsor Vargas earlier in the week.

Walker: If Seahawks trade Russell Wilson, Saints would be crazy not to do what it takes to get him

Who can blame New Orleans Saints fans for salivating Thursday after the latest report from ESPN reporter Adam Schefter?

Yeah, it’s probably a long shot.

In fact, I’d wager that Russell Wilson will still be under center for the Seattle Seahawks this fall.

Drew Brees plans to ‘think about a lot of things’ before making decision on retirement

Reports have circulated for weeks that this would be New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees’ final season.

The future Hall-of-Famer was asked bluntly if Sunday’s 30-20 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Divisional Round would be his final game and declined to say whether or not it would be.

“I’m going to give myself an opportunity to think about the season, think about a lot of things, just like I did last year, and make a decision,” Brees said.

After Further Review: Five takes from Saints loss to Bucs

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – Take one: Drew Brees farewell?

They say Father Time is undefeated. Though nothing is official, by the looks of Drew Brees, both during and after the game, it sure seems like he’s accepted that finality in his career.

Brees was pedestrian Sunday. Not the Superman he’d been for the vast majority of his 15 seasons in New Orleans. He threw three bad interceptions that proved costly. His second interception on a throw to Alvin Kamara in the fourth quarter essentially put the exclamation point on another playoff loss.

But it was the emotion after the game that made this ending feel different. He was in near tears on the sideline. When he jogged off the field, he blew kisses to his family. But as he was about to hit the tunnel, he walked back to take the moment all in. After the game, he shared a long hug and embrace with his wife on the field. He went on to play touch football with his sons. He ended up staying nearly two hours before actually exiting the dome.

It had all the makings of a man who knows his time is up.

Take Two: Turnover trouble

Sometimes it takes a little while to figure out what exactly went wrong in a game. Other times, the answer is blatantly obvious.

Drew Brees’ dismal performance ends Saints’ season, begins wait on QB’s decision on future

In what was potentially Drew Brees’ final NFL game, Father Time arrived.

Brees’ Saints fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30-20, in the Divisional Round on Sunday in New Orleans, ending a season some envisioned would culminate with Brees and Co. in the Super Bowl three weeks short of that destination.

In a matchup of two future Hall of Famers, Brees looked little like the legendary passer of old and instead just old, completing 19-of-34 passes for 134 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions. His 38.1 passer rating told the tale of what hundreds of thousands of eyes had already seen: Brees’ age finally showed in a pivotal contest.

Will Saints or Bucs defense answer the bell in first Drew Brees-Tom Brady playoff matchup?

What to watch for: You may have heard this game will feature a pair of future Hall of Fame quarterbacks named Tom Brady and Drew Brees. It’s their first-ever playoff meeting, and it might be their last since Brees is contemplating retirement after the season. Brady is trying to reach a conference championship game for a staggering 14th time, while Brees is seeking his fourth. They’re both flanked by top-six defenses, too. And while New Orleans dominated the regular-season series (winning 34-23 and 38-3), the Bucs have been one of the hottest teams in football during a current five-game win streak. — Mike Triplett
