METAIRIE, La. (AP)
Shaun Rogers, Aubrayo Franklin and Olin Kreutz are a testament to what the once laughable Saints have become in the Sean Payton era.

All three are established veterans who signed one-year deals to play in the Big Easy because they thought it gave them their best shot to win their first Super Bowl.

''It's just an opportunity to win, and win a lot of games, and hopefully a big game as far as being in that championship situation and environment,'' said Rogers, a 6-foot-4, 350-pound defensive tackle who spent his first 10 pro seasons doing a lot of losing in Detroit and Cleveland. ''I just wanted to play on a winning team, and if I wanted to be here, there were certain terms to come here under and I felt it was important to be in this type of situation, so we took advantage of that.''

If ya'll remember Reggie's agent said he wouldn't come here and we should draft someone else. Payton's answer was" **** you" then he hung up on Reggie's agent. Now the players come here for less money. How sweet it is.
