Alvin Kamara made a "Space Jam" reference when asked about his offseason quote to Bleacher Report that he thought the Saints would have "beat the sh— out of" the Eagles if they had reached the NFC Championship Game. "Yeah, that's what I said. I don't care if we're playing against the Monstars," Kamara told reporters Thursday. "My team, whatever team I'm on, I'm gonna say we're gonna win, period. I guarantee you it's the same with any other guy in this league that feels strongly about the team that they're on. It's no disrespect, direct disrespect. I didn't call a name, direct names. It's just my team against your team."

New Saints WR Brandon Marshall jokes about being "washed up" but admits that he knows what the reality is like for a 34-year-old receiver who hasn't been producing. And he said he's excited to be healthy and joining a QB like Drew Brees and a team like the Saints.

The Saints released undrafted rookie safety J.T. Gray to make room for newly-signed WR Brandon Marshall. Gray earned a spot on the roster because of his special teams ability this year, but he has been a healthy inactive in recent weeks.
