Before training camp opened

 Marshawn Lynch Jersey , Saints coach Sean Payton said he’s expanding the package of plays at tight end, specifically for free-agent arrival Jared Cook. Payton now says he encouraged by what he has seen from Cook in camp, while working with quarterback Drew Brees.“I think one thing you see with Cook is his stature,” Payton told reporters on Monday. A lot of times you’ll talk about a big target and there is a confidence level when you throw it to someone who’s that tall and who’s got really good hands Jared Cook Jersey , so they’ve been able to make some good plays. He is smart and he picked things up to his credit in the spring and now you’re starting to see some of the plays that take place. That’s encouraging.”The Saints haven’t really had a top-flight weapon at tight end since trading Jimmy Graham. Coby Fleener showed promise, but concussion issues ended his career. Cook could be exactly what the Saints need at that position. Since the Raiders traded Amari Cooper to the Cowboys for their 2019 first round pick, we’ve been forced to follow their season due to the draft pick implications. And since that day, we’ve watched that draft pick drop lower and lower. The Cowboys were 3-4 when they made the trade with the Raiders and would win seven of their last eight games to win the NFC East. Saturday night the 4-seed Cowboys would continue their winning ways to take down the 5-seed Seahawks 24-22 and advance to the Division round.It means the pick the Raiders receive from the Cowboys will be no higher than 26 overall.Appropriately enough E. J. Manuel Jersey , Amari Cooper himself was a major factor in the Cowboys getting the win. The former Raiders top pick receiver caught 7 passes for 106 yards to help his new team advance in the playoffs.As it happens, former Raiders longtime kicker, Sebastian Janikowski also played a role as he pulled hamstring on a long field goal attempt at the close of the first half. The field goal hooked wide right and the Seahawks had to go the rest of the way without him. They would lose by two.Follow @LeviDamien
