CARLSBAD -- The New Orleans Saints will open their off-season workouts Monday and won't have their head coach. They might not have their star quarterback, either. Asked Tuesday whether he plans to sign his franchise tender so he can be at those workouts, Drew Brees said, "We're continuing to work on a long-term deal. " Asked again whether that means he'll be there Monday, Brees gave an identical answer. Brees was at La Costa Resort and Spa to promote the 2012 Drew Brees Celebrity Championship, a golf tournament that supports the Brees Dream Foundation and benefits several San Diego charities.

Holy Candy, the horse part-owned by New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, was scratched Saturday morning from the Santa Anita Derby, a few hours before the 75th running of the $750,000 race that serves as a major prep for the Kentucky Derby. Holy Candy will instead run in the Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland on April 14. Brees is one of 12 members of Donkey Island Racing, which owns Holy Candy along with breeder Craig Stables, headed by Jenny Craig. Alex Solis Jr., who manages Donkey Island Racing, said trainer John Sadler wanted to give Holy Candy an extra week off, plus he likes the horse's chances at Keeneland better.

Generally, post-race celebrations in the Winner's Circle at Santa Anita are fairly sedate, with maybe a dozen or so people posing for a photo with the victorious horse. But that certainly wasn't the case after I'll Have Another edged 9-10 favorite Creative Cause by a nose in Saturday's Santa Anita Derby before a crowd of 33,166 to establish himself as the West Coast's top representative in the Kentucky Derby on May 5. There were hundreds of rowdy people crammed together in the Winner's Circle.

Joe Flacco believes he's the best quarterback in the NFL. Who are we to doubt him? After all, the Baltimore Ravens quarterback did just set the record for most passing yards in the NFL.... No, wait, that was Drew Brees. All right, he threw for the second-most yards ever.... No, that was Tom Brady. OK, he just won his second Super Bowl.... No, that was Eli Manning. Oh, then he just made his fifth Super Bowl appearance.... Nope, Brady again. Well, he must have at least one trip to the Super Bowl -- or maybe the pro bowl?

Ten horses were entered in Saturday's $750,000 Santa Anita Derby on Wednesday morning, including one partly owned by Drew Brees. Holy Candy, a surprise late entry, is owned by breeder Craig Stables, which is headed by Jenny Craig of weight-loss program fame, and Donkey Island Racing, a group that includes the New Orleans Saints quarterback. But indications later Wednesday were that Holy Candy's trainer, John Sadler, might choose to bypass Santa Anita's historic race and run the horse in the $750,000 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland in Lexington, Ky., on April 14. Holy Candy has raced only four times, winning once.

Let's take a deep breath and hold off on the canonization of Roger Goodell. The puffs of white smoke coming out of the chimney are a bit much. Yes, Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, slapped down the New Orleans Cheating Saints pretty good Wednesday. Somebody will make a T-shirt out of that soon. The big letters on the front: NOCS. On the back: a picture of Brett Favre, bleeding from the nose. Goodell didn't have a difficult decision. One of his teams got caught doing something really stupid and Neanderthal and then lied about it. Suspend the guy in charge for a year, do the same to the guy in charge of the guy in charge for six months, collect some cash and take away some draft choices.

The Miami Dolphins figure to be one of the most aggressive teams in bidding for the services of Peyton Manning, who will be released by Indianapolis on Wednesday morning. In doing so, the Dolphins will be mindful of what happened six years ago when they let a prime opportunity get away. In 2006, the Dolphins were in the market for a quarterback and had a chance to sign Drew Brees, who was coming off a devastating shoulder injury. Brees had been released by San Diego, which had decided to cast its lot with Philip Rivers.

Randy Moss to the New Orleans Saints? Sounds kind of crazy with everything else that the Saints have going on right now, but it could happen. Fox Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that the awesome-when-he-wants-to-be wide receiver will work out for the defending NFC South champions on Tuesday. Moss is one of the best wide receivers in NFL history and, even though he spent all of 2011 out of the league, he still could be a valuable asset to a team ... if he wants to. And he says that he wants to. But do the Saints, who were the No. 2 seed coming out of the NFC last year, really need to bring in the talented but controversial receiver right now?

Reporting from Santa Clara, Calif.   In the last two weeks, Scott Tolzien of the San Francisco 49ers has thrown for more than 10,000 yards. And he's never taken a snap in an NFL game. Tolzien is the third-string quarterback whose job it is to emulate the opposing passer to help prepare the 49ers defense. His assignments in the playoffs so far? He has played the role of New Orleans' Drew Brees and the New York Giants' Eli Manning, who combined for 10,409 yards passing this season.
