Saints News, 6/11/15: Brandin Cooks is Saints' Offensive Star of Wednesday's OTA

New, comment

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: The only player who outshined receiver Brandin Cooks during the New Orleans Saints' organized team activity Wednesday was cornerback Delvin Breaux. But Cooks even one-upped Breaux on one sensational play during 7-on-7 passing drills. Breaux had excellent coverage on Cooks, but quarterback Drew Brees led Cooks beautifully with a downfield pass, and Cooks reached forward to snag it in with the corner draped over his back.
