Being that I played with Tom before, there are certain things that you can do as a team that you can’t do if your quarterback is unable to do,” says Watson.

There is no feel-good story in how the Saints season finished. New Orleans simply didn't meet their season expectations in what is likely the final time we'll see Drew Brees.

No disrespect to Tom Brady, but young Tampa Bay linebacker Devin White wants the Buccaneers defense on the field with the game on the line.
