WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, WV - Tight end Ben Watson and receiver Marques Colston looked more like enduring playmakers running downhill than aging veterans in decline.

As Drew Brees drove the Saints to the end zone on the opening series of the club's annual preseason scrimmage Friday, his six completions included two to Watson and two to Colston, capped by Colston's touchdown on 3-yard fade.

While Colston is the Saints' all-time leading receiver, he is also 32 and began his 10th training camp last week on the physically unable to perform list. Apparently, his undisclosed ailment was minor, and he said he doesn't foresee his role in the offense changing significantly.
