Saints

NFL

The Saints have now tied a franchise record with seven Pro Bowlers after guard Larry Warford was added to the NFC all-star roster as a replacement for Eagles guard Brandon Brooks. This is the first career Pro Bowl for Warford, who clearly paid off as the Saints' biggest investment in free agency this year at four years, $34 million. The 26-year-old, who spent his first four years in Detroit, helped the Saints lead the NFL in both yards per rush and yards per pass attempt.

Tom Brady talked about getting the 12 stitches out of his hand in the coming days (via "Kirk and Callahan Show"): "Hopefully some time this week. And at that point, again, because I was fortunate not to tear any ligaments or anything like that - there was no broken bones - that was obviously the best news I could ever hear based on what you thought it could be. It ended up being a lot of good luck after, I'd say, a pretty unlucky injury. It turned out to be a lot good luck it wasn't more serious than it was."

Vikings

NFL

Veteran guard Joe Berger discussed the possibility of retiring last week and said he's leaning towards it again when asked after the Vikings loss: "In this moment, it’s too hard to decide that," Berger said. "In my mind, yes I guess. But I need to get back and relax and let the season sink in and see what I want to do and what there is for offers in the first place. If nobody wants me, it makes the decision easy. Right now it's too early but that is what I’m thinking."
