“If we were running a reverse or a special play, he’s someone, certainly, with his speed, that would be one of the guys we’d look to do that with,” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “Whenever you add speed to the field, it stretches the defense, both in the passing game and the running game. We just have to find that balance and fit it into what we’re doing.”

Cooks didn’t get as many reps with the first-team offense, because he is still trying to learn a new offense and catch up on everything he has missed since he was back at school.

But it is apparent to Cooks’ teammates that he will be able to make an immediate impact on the team.

“Today, I didn’t even see him when he got that hand-off,” outside linebacker Junior Galette said, describing a play at Thursday’s practice where Cooks got a hand-off on a reverse and sped up the sidelines. “I haven’t seen that speed in quite a while. His speed is definitely top-tier in the league.”

I can't wait to see him in action. I have a feeling he is going to be the real thing. Something special.

Re: Cooks shines during Thursday's OTA practice

How is Coleman doing in OTA so far? Haven`t really heard a lot in the last couple of weeks.

With his size he could be something special as well in our new offensive System.

BTW: Got tickets for Saints vs. 49ers, vs. Bengals and LSU vs. Bama. Making my trip over from Europe this November! Can`t wait

The reverse? Ughhhh!

Current NFL defenses are just too fast for that type of Tomfoolery.

Also ditch the flea flicker please.
