Saints WR Brandin Cooks said he is looking forward to Sunday's rematch against the Chiefs' standout young CB Marcus Peters. The two of them went head-to-head in college in 2013, with Cooks at Oregon State and Peters at Washington. Cooks finished with 10 catches for 117 yards and a touchdown, but mostly while playing catch-up in a 69-27 loss to the Huskies. Peters had two interceptions, a forced fumble and three pass defenses. "It was a battle," Cooks said. "One of those battles, I guess you're going back and forth on punches as you would say in boxing terms. But it was a great one. He made some plays, I made some plays. It was one of those, you remember that game and you build off it."

It was an easy decision for a front office that considers Anderson, who will make $1.6 million next season, a potential long-term core piece.
