Saints tight end Ben Watson is among three players nominated for the position of NFL Players Association president. Watson will be vying with Ryan Clark and Eric Winston to replace outgoing union president Domonique Foxworth, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reported.

The chosen candidates will make speeches before NFLPA reps vote on Wednesday. Watson is on the executive committee, and the other two have been player reps, Pelissero reported.

Watson came to the Saints in free agency in 2013 from Cleveland. He had 19 catches for 226 yards and two touchdowns for New Orleans last year.

Meanwhile, Clark played his prep football at Archbishop Shaw. He played for LSU from 1998 to 2001, helped the Steelers win a Super Bowl at the end of the 2008 season and helped them win an AFC Championship at the end of the 2010 campaign.

Clark was a free agent as of Tuesday night.
