METAIRIE, La. -- Brandin Cooks is back where he belongs -- “flying around the field,” as he put it -- during the New Orleans Saints' OTA practices.

The second-year receiver might be the most exciting and important playmaker for a Saints offense that traded away top receiving targets Jimmy Graham and Kenny Stills in the offseason.

Not to put too much pressure on a still-21-year-old kid who has only 10 career games under his belt. But the dynamic, 5-foot-10, 189-pound speedster sure looks primed to become the Saints' No. 1 receiver this year.

Re: Dynamic Saints WR Brandin Cooks actually expects to play faster in Year 2

big part of our lack luster offense last year. we need Brandon as a huge factor in the line up. a guy hard to cover, quick toss from brees to him as an escape route for yards and keeping the chains moving. nobody should cover this guy, separation specialist. its what we grabbed him for anyway.
and most of all stay healthy.

I love Brandon

it's a shame he injured his thumb on the last meaningless drive of the lackluster Bengals home game.

much better than a knee

glad to hear he is working out with Drew in San Diego

When Drew had protection he was hitting Cooks deep in stride
Brandon has incredible hands, just needs to shuck defenders trying to jam him at the line

It's good to hear a Saints receiver referred to as dynamic. I love to see that Drew and he are working on their timing.

Makes sense... More familiarity with the system equals less thinking. Can't wait to see him really get loose and unencumbered by the mental aspect of our offense.

Re: Dynamic Saints WR Brandin Cooks actually expects to play faster in Year 2

throw the ball down field to Cook and that will help. last year he was a gadget player. bubble left and bubble right. drove me nuts. hopefully the signing of CJ will take a bulk of those plays away from him.

with his speed and quickness? he needs to get behind the LB and in front of the safeties. then let him do his damage. we all know he can do the streak

he can wear out an entire second level of defense by the fourth all by himself

Freaking Speedy Gonzales.
