Saints players dress up as bellhops

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Yes, this is a Cowboys blog, and we'll get to some Cowboys stuff later this week.

But several Saints players who arrived here early for the Pro Bowl met their teammates at the team hotel dressed up as bellhops on a rainy Monday.

"For about half-an-hour today, those Pro Bowl players earned some pretty good tips with our players getting off the bus and handling the luggage," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "They did a good job. We're always one to steal a pretty good idea. I think Bill Walsh a long time ago had a pretty good idea, and we just took it like one of his offensive plays and ran with it."

Saints quarterback Drew Brees thought linebacker Jonathan Vilma came up with the idea.
