New Orleans Saints reserve safety Chris Reis knows first-hand how important tonight's exhibition finale against the Tennessee Titans at LP Field can be, especially for players still seeking to impress the coaching staff enough to land a spot on the final 53-man roster.

In his first season with the Saints three years ago, he entered the last preseason game having not played much and clearly on that proverbial bubble.

Nervous about his NFL future and practically an afterthought to most camp observers, Reis played the game of his professional life, making six unassisted tackles and intercepting two passes.

Although he was released two days later, the coaching staff noticed him. He was quickly re-signed to the practice squad and promoted to the active roster less than a month later.

"I remember my first year coming in here, I didn't get to play a lot, " Reis said. "But that last game really helped me make the team and make an impression on them. This last preseason game can definitely help you in a lot of ways."
