New Orleans beat the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, Florida.

Saints QB Drew Brees presented the 44th president of the nation with a Number 44 New Orleans jersey. The Chicago Bears fan said jokingly that he couldn’t get away wearing the jersey in the Windy City.

HALL OF FAME GAME: Dallas Cowboys 16 Cincinnati Bengals 7

The Bengals don’t get very many chances to play in the Hall of Fame Game, but when they do,it usually bodes well for the future.

Cincinnati went to the Super Bowl the last time they started a season in the preseason Hall of Fame Game. It was 22 years ago in 1988 when the magical season ended with a trip to Miami against the 49ers.

Sunday night at Fawcett Stadium in Canton, Ohio, there was no indication of an a championship season as the Dallas Cowboys won 16-7 over the Bengals. It’s only preseason and the defending AFC North Champions need to fine tune everything.

The first-team defense allowed a long scoring drive the only time they lined up on the field against the Cowboys offensive unit.

The Cincinnati offensive starters managed only one first down in each of their two possessions.

The Bengals had several penalties which hurt as well. A Dallas fumble in the end zone was recovered by the Bengals but Jonathan Fanene was ruled in the neutral zone and that play was nullified. A motion penalty by Chad OchoCinco wiped out a first down pass completion to Terrell Owens.

The Bengals next game is Sunday August 15th as Denver visits Paul Brown Stadium.

Andre Johnson gets new deal from Houston Texans

Andre Johnson has said all along that he was committed to the Houston Texans football team.

Reports out of Houston has the maximum value of the contract at $38.5 million, including $13 million guaranteed.

The 29-year-old Johnson, who had five years left on his contract, has led the NFL in receiving yards the past two years and topped 100 pass receptions in three of the past four. He has the NFL’S highest receiving yards average (90.2 per game) since 2006.

Team owner Bob McNair feels that the soft-spoken Johnson will become the team’s first Hall of Fame player and never wanted him to play anywhere else.

The Texans drafted Johnson third overall in 2003, the expansion team’s second year of existence. The team re-signed him to and eight-year contract in 2007.

The Texans have made improvements over the years and were 9-7 in 2009, their first winning record.

First-round draft pick Joe Haden has reached a contract agreement with the Cleveland Browns.

The deal came just hours after Haden missed the first workout of training camp in Berea, Ohio, a southern Cleveland suburb.

Haden, a cornerback out of Florida, was on his way to Cleveland on Saturday after signing the five-year contract.

The Browns had opened camp on Saturday morning. Head coach Eric Mangini was worried that Haden was falling further behind in drills and learning of the defensive playbook every day that he missed camp.

The number 7 overall selection in 2010, Haden was the last draft pick to sign a contract and is expected to challenge Eric Wright for a startingĀ  job.
