He was able to observe it when his Saints faced them in joint practices during training camp previous year.
Newly acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks had some fun in his introductory conference call with New England Patriots reporters on Wednesday when the topic of him catching passes from Drew Brees the last three seasons and now preparing to do the same with Tom Brady was brought up. Bill Belichick has reportedly long coveted Cooks and planned on drafting him before the Saints traded up to snag him in 2014. However, if New England releases his rights to sign with the Saints, the Patriots would receive New Orleans' No. 11 overall pick this year.
Per Jim McBride of the Boston Globe, Cooks said he is looking forward to doing some "new things [in New England] that I necessarily haven't done in New Orleans". "Someone stole it. I put it in here, man", Brady says in the video, pointing to his locker. TheTimes-Picayune broke down the new deal which is four years for $28 million, and it is worth it for Fairley who had a great season in 2016. And I guess, if we could set this straight, I think a lot of that and what was going on got taken out of context and a little exaggerated.
Cooks expressed frustration with his role in the offense, and those feelings went public in November. He's going from a team that never reached the playoffs during his three seasons to one that has competed in the postseason eight consecutive seasons and has missed the playoffs just twice since 2001.
Arkansas draws Seton Hall in first round of NCAA Tournament
The University of Kentucky will enter the NCAA Tournament with a head of steam, and a No. 2 seed in the Big Dance. The Commodores saw a three-game winning streak end after reaching the semifinals for the first time since 2013.
Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports is reporting on Tuesday that the Texans are willing to part with their second round pick in this year's draft (57th overall) if Butler is inked to a long-term deal. "I can't wait to get started". For the first time in nearly 10 years, the Patriots will have a true #1 wide receiver. If that deal was there for the taking in another offseason in which the Patriots had a need for an outside receiver, perhaps they'd have made it then.
Butler has become one of the league's best cornerbacks since making a Super Bowl-saving interception during the final moments of Super Bowl XLIX. Fairley had his best season as a pro in his first year with New Orleans. "From the way that they run things, the way that they coach their players, the way that they walked and talked, my impression was very high for that organization and you see why they are who they are".
All the signings could help the Saints next season, and the team didn't badly overpay for any of the players. But in lieu of picks in the top two rounds, they get the upside of a 70-plus-catch, 1,000-plus-yard, double-digit-touchdown producer with two years of club control left on his deal (one year plus a team option for 2018).
