Of that team, only 3 players are still active in the NFL. Quarterback Drew Brees and Punter Thomas Morstead, who are still with the Saints. Also, Safety Malcolm Jenkins, who is now returning to New Orleans.

Jenkins and the Saints, agreeing to a 4 year, $32 million dollar contract Wednesday, according to reports.
