METAIRIE (AP) — When Saints rookie receiver Tre’Quan Smith picked his jersey number, he had a choice between 10 or 18.
The number 10 held no personal significance to Smith previously, but he knew it meant something to fans in New Orleans.

Step inside my house Babe/I’ll sing for you a song
I’ll tell you ‘bout where I’ve been/It shouldn’t take too long
I’ll show you all the things I own/My treasures you might say
Couldn’t be more’n ten dollars’ worth/But they brighten up my day
