Snead said he feels faster after losing seven pounds during the offseason, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The change could help Snead gain separation from cornerbacks, but blocking is also a huge part of his distinct role in Greg Roman's offense. Despite signing a one-year, $6 million extension last fall, Snead isn't likely to see a big increase from last year's total of 46 targets.

Brees focused on his arm strength this offseason while working with throwing coach Tom House, ESPN.com's Mike Triplett reports.
Analysis: According to ESPN Stats & Information, Brees has completed only one pass that traveled more than 35 yards in the air since 2017. Part of that relates to personnel, strategy and his efficiency on shorter passes, but it also seems the 41-year-old quarterback is acknowledging that reduced arm strength has been a factor. The completion percentage king is hoping to complete more long throws in 2020, though his core group of pass catchers -- Michael Thomas, Alvin Kamara, Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Cook -- is better suited to short and intermediate routes. The Saints do have Tre'Quan Smith as a potential deep threat to replace Ted Ginn, who signed with Chicago this past offseason. While there's been ample speculation 2020 will be his final NFL season, Brees has not yet decided if that will be the case.

The Steelers waived Barrett on Sunday.
Analysis: Barrett linked with the Steelers' practice squad last December, but he won't stick with the team into training camp. The 25-year-old has also logged prior stints on New Orleans' practice squad, but he's still looking for an opportunity to make his debut in the league.

The Saints waived Lewis on Sunday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Lewis combined for 20 catches, 272 yards and two touchdowns while taking seven carries for 35 yards in 34 contests with the Saints between 2016 and 2018. On top of that, he averaged 9.3 yards on 36 punt returns and 22.0 yards on 24 kick returns. After not playing a game last season, he was brought back to New Orleans via a reserve/future contract. Unfortunately for Lewis, he was cut loose as the Saints made moves to get to 80 players on the roster.
