Thomas says he still wants a better deal
Sean Payton says he’s confident an NCAA investigation which alleged wrongdoing by Reggie Bush and resulted in sanctions against USC won’t be a distraction to the Super Bowl champion Saints. The Saints’ coach spoke after an open offseason practice Monday which Bush missed. Payton says Bush had called to say he’d be missing the voluntary practice but expected to attend practices later this week. Payton says the NCAA probe spanned several seasons and adds that if it hasn’t affected Bush or New Orleans to this point, it probably won’t now. Saints defensive tackle Sedrick Ellis, a former USC teammate of Bush, says he was saddened by the Trojans’ punishment but still supports Bush and his school.

record. Manning was the league’s best player, capturing the MVP
award a record fourth time.
The Colts reached the Super Bowl despite the absence of Pro Bowl
