The NFL commissioner said the playoffs will not expand this season, but it will be discussed for the future. Last December, Goodell spoke about adding two or four teams to the current 12-team format.

The NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says he mentioned to league owners how good a job the city did staging its first Super Bowl since 2001, and, of course, its first since Hurricane Katrina ravaged the city in 2005.

The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran tight end Benjamin Watson to a three-year contract, and have also re-signed special teams leader Courtney Roby and reserve linebacker Ramon Humber for another season.

The 6-foot-0, 208-pound Lewis is a New Orleans native, playing high school football in the city at O. Perry Walker.

A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that the deal is potentially worth about $36 million, with $17.7 million guaranteed.
