Saints have signed veteran OT Tony Hills, per his agent Mark Slough. Hills has bounced around the NFL as a backup with several teams since 2008. ... Saints were apparently looking for o-line depth since they tried out an OT, a G and a C on Tuesday. Not sure if this is a sign that LT Terron Armstead is dinged up since they weren't looking exclusively at OTs. G Jahri Evans has been sidelined by a knee injury for two weeks.

The Saints have released both S Kenny Phillips and WR Joseph Morgan, according to ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates. One of those spots will go to new punter Brandon Fields.

Report: Saints to try out kickers, punters

The Saints will try out kickers and punters today, according to Fox Sports. Punter Thomas Morstead (strained quad) was injured during a kickoff on Sunday night and kicker Zach Hocker shanked a 30-yard field goal.

The pressure's off

Drew Brees struggled against the blitz on Sunday night but was nearly flawless against four-man rushes. Luckily for the Saints, the Cowboys didn't send extra rushers very often.

Sean Payton coached new Dolphins coach Dan Campbell with Giants, Cowboys and Saints. Said: "He’s a fantastic guy, great worker, great teammate. He’s someone that is tough, strong, I can’t say enough good things." Said it's difficult for assistants to replace their head coach in-season. "But Dan’s someone I know well and know that he’ll handle that as best he can."

I went back and watched all of Drew Brees' throws, and it's hard to say how much he was affected by his shoulder because Dallas' pressure forced so many quick, short throws. And he got hit on most of his early attempts downfield. Brees didn't thrown downfield much, but when he had time to step up and deliver late in the game, he was effective. Sean Payton said they wanted to throw downfield more early but pressure prevented it.
