Your most embarrassing moment?

Going in motion against Seattle when I was with the Chiefs. The snap count was on two. I went up the field when quarterback Elvis Grbac was still into his cadence. Everyone was standing still, looking at me.

Favorite off-day activity

I hang out with my six children. I wanted eight, but I'm stopping at six.

Cut the preseason down by at least two games.

Last Week

Horn caught two passes for 28 yards in a 37--27 win over the Patriots last Thursday.

This Week

The Saints host the Ravens on Friday before finishing the preseason at Oakland on Sept. 1.
