Ranking the NFL's offensive triplets from 32-1

When the Jaguars locked up emerging young wideout Allen Hurns with a four-year contract extension a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like a logical move. The Jaguars likely failed to extract enough of a discount on the extension by virtue of already having Hurns signed for two more years on artificially low salaries, but the idea of having Hurns around for a long time makes total sense. In combination with quarterback Blake Bortles and wideout Allen Robinson, Hurns gives the Jaguars a set of triplets the team hasn't had since the days when Mark Brunell was throwing to Keenan McCardell and Jimmy Smith.

10. New Orleans Saints

QB Drew Brees, RB Mark Ingram, WR Brandin Cooks

The Saints are in turmoil elsewhere on their roster, but it's hard to place a combination featuring Brees very low on a list like this one. Brees' performance barely slipped despite struggling with an early-season shoulder injury that seemed to sap his arm strength and even his confidence to make the sort of throws he would typically make at times. He's going to look past his prime at some point, but at 37, we're still waiting for it to happen. Brees got some help from Cooks, who took over as the No. 1 wideout and caught 84 passes for 1,138 yards and nine scores. (The Saints might still wish they had held on to the draft picks they used to trade up for Cooks in 2014 and just taken the guys Arizona ended up drafting, safety/linebacker Deone Bucannon and wideout John Brown.) With Ingram maturing into a solid-if-unspectacular running back over the past two seasons, this is a competent trio

I'm no one.

I misread the article ... "Rankings with Rankins".

Sorry, carry on.
