"With Drew Brees at the quarterback role, I think we're the best."
Every player speaking with the media this time of year has to hype up their team to the press. What else would you expect them to say? So it’s no surprise when New Orleans Saints WR Willie Snead said that he thinks the Saints group of Wide Receivers are the best in the NFL. Lots of players make this claim, some less believable than others, but it’s not a shock to hear.
But Snead and the Saints just might have a fairly strong case here, even after the Saints traded away 1,000-yard receiver Brandin Cooks to the New England Patriots.

Willie Snead is himself a standout in the group, who is gaining growing recognition among the football world. Playing in a contract year with everyone to gain with a huge year, Saints fans should be excited for what Snead might be able to bring to the Saints offense next year.
Ready for a bold prediction?
Willie Snead finishes with more targets and yards than Brandin Cooks in 2017.
