The New Orleans Saints are bringing in a free agent tight end for a visit, in hopes of securing some help at that position.


The 31-year old Cook had the best season of his career with the Oakland Raiders in 2018, catching 68 passes for 896 yards and 6 touchdowns.

A third-round selection in the 2009 NFL Draft by Tennessee, Cook spent four seasons with the Titans, before playing three years for the St. Louis Rams (2013-2015), and one for the Green Bay Packers (2016), prior to his time the last two seasons with the Raiders.

A 2018 Pro Bowl selection, the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Cook has accumulated 425 career receptions for 5,464 yards and 25 touchdowns.

The Saints are seeking help at the tight end position, after losing last year's starter, Benjamin Watson, who elected to retire.
