"Everyone knows the goal - to get to the Super Bowl. No matter what else is going on, guys know that is the thing we play for,"-

OTA's start tomorow! Excited to play with some of the veteran Saints. We'll see how many reps a new guy gets though...

Bucs source tells me free agent TE Dallas Clark, who visited Tampa's facility last week, is expected to sign with team as early as today.

"During the collective bargaining negotiations this topic had been brought up. But before this topic was brought up, they were trying to make sure we got the money situation straightened, the health benefits — which were the top two issues on the board. Those dragged on a little bit, so when it got to the deadline, this issue of Commissioner Goodell being the judge and jury, there wasn’t enough time. … We went ahead and signed the deal. Now, looking back on it, we wish we would have spent a little bit more time trying to take away his ability to hand out fines and then also be the guy who hears the appeals of the fines. Now we have to deal with it for the next six years, but this case right here with Jonathan Vilma is going to try to take away a little bit of steam."

I think throughout this process our big issue has been just to see that proof and that evidence that has caused this accusations, that has caused the NFL to report the things they have tried to report and until we see proof or evidence I really don’t see how you could believe anything that is being said."

Brees remains unsigned. Did you know that? If you didn’t, if you’re unaware of the status of contract negotiations, go read Jeff Duncan’s piece at He manages 850 words without a single new fact or insight. Now that’s journalism. Seriously, you guys have no idea how hard that is. (Gotta give them credit, though: the photo illustrating the article is a hoot. If you’re not a Saints fan, I mean.)
