The New Orleans Saints are hosting top free agent tight end Jared Cook for a visit, according to an NFL Network report.

Cook, who made the Pro Bowl with the Oakland Raiders last season, is scheduled to visit with the Saints Thursday (Mar. 14) according to the report.



Earlier this month at the NFL combine, coach Sean Payton identified tight end as a position the Saints would look to address in the offseason after their top pass catcher at the position, Ben Watson, retired following the 2018 season.

Best of a bad TE group I guess.
Not overly enthused but we need something

Re: Saints Going To Jared?

While most players get a bump playing with Brees and in this offense, his pedestrian play will not justify the money that will need to be spent...

We had a top five offense with the guys we have sans Ben Watson, and Watson's age limited his snaps, production, play-making...

Was discussing with Rez last night on the FA Thread that I just don't see Cook being that productive after being the only receiving option for Oakland all of last season...

I think it’ll be fine. I don’t have any issue with signing him.

I have not watched him play but his high lights looked good with nice down the field catches. Ya'll know more than I do......which was watching last years high lights that Smash posted. Thanks Smash!

You kind of lost me on that one in regards to production.

Cook is a high level TE that we could desperately use in SP's offense. When I've watched him play, I see a more athletic Jimmy Graham.

He had a career best last season ... just like the other guy we signed on defense (Demario Davis) in 2018.

I hope the Saints can find a way to sign Jared.
