According to Gil Brandt on Twitter, Saints WR Brandin Cooks is expected to “spend two weeks in SD working out” with Drew Brees.
SMITTY: Brandin Cooks has already been nicknamed “lightning” by cornerback Keenan Lewis. Cooks was our No. 2-ranked rookie receiver back in February, and Mike Evans barely passed him heading into the month of April, so we’ve been talking this receiver up since the start of the 2014 fantasy football off-season. You won’t find many sites higher on Cooks than we are. Drew Brees has already identified Cooks as the main replacement for Darren Sproles, so expect to see Cooks all over the field right out of the gate! He is an early favorite for Rookie of the Year, and for good reason. It wouldn’t be shocking if he pulled in 6-8TDs as a rookie.
