The club announced Sunday it had reached a deal with wide receiver Brandin Cooks, the No. 20 overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.

As with all first-round deals, Cooks received a four-year contract, but the Saints will later have the option to add a fifth year to the deal.

The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Cooks caught 226 passes for 3,272 yards and 24 touchdowns at Oregon State (2011-2013). The Saints traded their first-round pick (No. 27) and third-round selection (No. 91) to Arizona to move up seven spots to select Cooks, who is likely to see immediate playing time for New Orleans.

Re: Brandin Cooks sigsn 4 year deal

This is the quickest first round signing I remember. I guess with the rookie cap in place there is not much to argue.
Danno and st thomas like this.

Yes. Last year I thought that Kenny V wasted little time signing his rookie contract as well.

Not much room with the new CBA. It is what it is. In 4 years we'll be discussing the 5th year option.

I think that leaves just one pick to sign

The new CBA makes this part of the process so much more easier than it used to be, especially with the 1st rounders.
