Notes around the Saints as team preps for Miami road trip

  • QB Drew Brees has earned his 11th career NFC offensive player of the week award, his second of the season. The Miami Herald has an extensive history on how the Dolphins swung and missed - twice - on opportunities to get Brees in Miami, and this from the T-P on just how much Brees loves being in New Orleans.

  • The Jets have signed former LSU and Saint DT Howard Green after losing DT Kris Jenkins for the year.

  • Great article on Heath Evans and his wife and their Miami-based charity here.

  • New Dolphins starting QB Chad Henne has received high praise from legendary Dolphins coach Don Shula.

  • The Saints are early seven point favorites in Miami.
