It was widely expected to see the New Orleans Saints move on from Jared Cook after his frustrating two years in black and gold, but the decision to cut Josh Hill as a salary cap casualty was surprising. It left the Saints with just three tight ends New Orleans Saints Jerseys China under contract for 2021: practice squad holdovers Garrett Griffin and Ethan Wolf, and second-year pro Adam Trautman. Trautman, a third-round draft pick in 2020, is now on top of the depth chart. Taysom Hill shouldn’t be overlooked, but he lined up as an inline tight end just 46 times last season per Pro Football Focus.

Trautman led the group in total snaps played last season, with 547 (393 on offense, 154 on special teams). Hill finished second, having missed time with an injury, with 478 (359 on offense, 119 on special teams), while all 466 of Cook’s snaps were on offense. So the rookie had plenty of opportunities to learn on the job.

While he didn’t see much NFL-quality competition at Dayton, his college receiving stats are eye-popping: 178 receptions for 2,295 receiving yards with 31 touchdown catches. He made the most of his 6-foot-5, 255-pound frame and short-area speed (timing a 1.65-second 10-yard split and 6.78-second time in the three-cone drill) to bully lesser athletes. NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill noted that he excelled on crossing and out routes, as well as hitches, with encouraging results on seam routes further downfield.

What’s impressive is how much he was able to do as a blocker in his rookie year. Trautman was a big help in the run game especially later in the season, which was unexpected given he was marketed as more of a receiver than a blocker on college scouting reports. His early aptitude on the ground suggests he can continue to be an asset there while taking on more responsibilities in the passing game.

So will the Trautman experiment work out? There’s plenty of reasons to think he’ll step up and succeed, but let’s temper those expectations a bit. He finished ninth on the team in targets (16), totaling 15 receptions for 171 receiving yards and just one touchdown catch. Asking him to triple those numbers would be a tall task, but that’s what it would take for him to approach 500 receiving yards. And don’t underestimate the loss of his position coach Dan Campbell, who’s now the head coach of the Detroit Lions.

If the Saints are going to remain competitive in the post-Drew Brees (and post-Josh Hill and -Jared Cook) era, it’ll take young players on salary cap-friendly contracts like Trautman meeting, if not beating, expectations. He’s on the fast track to doing just that; let’s see if he can pull it off.

New Detroit Lions tight end Josh Hill spent the first eight seasons of his career with the New Orleans Saints.

It is all too easy to forget that when NFL players are released, it does not just impact them.

Families are uprooted, and relationships with Stitched New Orleans Saints Jerseys peers and colleagues change in the matter of an instant.

When the veteran tight end found out he was released by the Saints, his son expressed excitement at the chance to leave the daunting heat of Louisiana.

“Yeah, it is tough,” Hill commented. “We kind of made this our home base. We stayed here throughout the year. We’ve got four kids. Moving those relationships and everything, there’s growing pains with that. But, we told the kids that I got released. My oldest boy said — he was excited — I was surprised to see that he was excited. He’s like, ‘Let’s go somewhere where there is snow. I am tired of this heat down here.’ So, I guess his wish was granted, and he’s going to see some snow.”

Reaction to quarterback Drew Brees’ retirement

This week, veteran Saints quarterback and soon-to-be Hall of Famer Drew Brees announced his retirement, 15 years after officially signing with the Saints.

Hill was asked Tuesday about playing with Brees, one of the all-time great NFL quarterbacks.

“What a special guy, you know, off the field, on the field,” Hill explained. “He spoke into my life a lot about being a father. Obviously, the way that he plays the game is very committed. No matter what the situation was, he was locked in and ready to go. Sad to see him go, but I’m extremely grateful for those eight years.”

Jared Cook Landing Spots: Potential suitors for the former Saints TE
After being released by the New Orleans Saints earlier this month, where are some potential landing spots for tight end Jared Cook?

Jared Cook Landing Spots: Potential suitors for the former Saints TE
What’s in this article? Click to show
NFL free agency is just around the corner and teams are frantically making cap space to upgrade their teams this offseason. The New Orleans Saints cut ties with two tight ends at the beginning of the month. While Josh Hill recently signed with the Detroit Lions, where are some landing spots for his former teammate Jared Cook?

Jared Cook Landing Spots
The veteran tight end represents a reliable and durable option in free agency. Jared Cook has had a 12-year career in the NFL, demonstrating his durability with 178 appearances for five teams. With 6,673 career receiving yards and 41 touchdowns, he could be an additional receiving threat for an offense.

Furthermore, he hasn’t seen much drop-off as he’s aged. Over the last four years, he’s produced over 8 yards per target, more than 2 touchdowns in each season, and over 60 percent catch completion rate. So, which landing spots could best utilize Jared Cook?

Opportunity Knox for Cook in Buffalo?
It’s no secret that the Buffalo Bills are in the market for a tight end this offseason. Behind Dawson Knox, the trio of Tyler Kroft, Lee Smith, and Reggie Gilliam don’t really move the needle in what has become one of the NFL’s most explosive offenses. As a result, the Bills have been linked to available free-agent tight ends, including Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith.

However, Cook would give them a cheaper option that provides a productive return. Cook had more touchdowns in 2020 than Knox has in the last two seasons. He also offers a more reliable pair of hands than Knox. The second-year tight end out of Ole Miss has a 55 percent career average catch completion rate.

I’m not suggesting that Cook comes in and replaces Knox. However, his appearance in a tight end rotation would make Buffalo’s offense even more potent.

Could Cook provide reliable pass catching in Carolina?
In the same month that the Carolina Panthers welcomed back Greg Olsen for his retirement ceremony, they could also be a landing spot for Jared Cook as they look to once again have a productive TE on the roster. A pass-catching tight end was the Carolina offense’s staple in the mid-2010s, where Olsen had three consecutive seasons with 1,000+ receiving yards.

Of course, Cook isn’t Olsen in his prime. That would be a foolhardy comparison to make. However, the Panthers tight end room lacks any significant depth. When your options include former Penn State quarterback Tommy Stevens, you know you need to add pieces.

There is a strong chance that the Panthers will have a rookie quarterback under center come the start of the season. Giving the newcomer a reliable pass catcher at the tight end position will be pivotal early on.

Will there be a Cam-to-Cook connection in New England?
Despite drafting Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene last year, I fully expect the New England Patriots to address the tight end position again Wholesale New Orleans Saints Jerseys this offseason. The current depth chart lists the above two plus Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo. Last year, they combined for 254 yards and a touchdown. It’s a far cry from a Patriots offense that once had Rob Gronkowski wreaking havoc.

The Patriots re-signed Cam Newton on another one-year deal. Now, it’s time to surround him with some offensive weaponry. Bill Belichick has made a career out of getting the last bit of value out of veteran players. There is no reason to believe he couldn’t do that with Cook.

Other potential landing spots for Jared Cook
While the above three figure to be the best landing spots for Jared Cook, there are other options to contemplate. The Jacksonville Jaguars have a clear need at tight end. I would expect them to address the position in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, even if they do, Cook would provide a reliable veteran pass-catching option for incoming quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

The Cincinnati Bengals also figure to be in the market at the position. It seems forever ago that Tyler Eifert was their go-to weapon at the position. As Joe Burrow returns from injury, Cook would give him a reliable option. Although they invested in Drew Sample, he isn’t the same dangerous threat in the passing game that Cook provides.

The Seattle Seahawks signed Greg Olsen last free agency to provide a tight end option for Russell Wilson. With Olson now retired and Jacob Hollister about to hit free agency, they could be a legitimate landing spot for Jared Cook.

What is Jared Cook’s market value in free agency?
All of the above landing spots for Jared Cook have the cap space available to get a deal done. However, with significantly less cap space available to them, the Buffalo Bills would appear to be the team most likely to sign Cook. Both the New England Patriots and Carolina Panthers can afford one of the premium free-agent tight ends like Hunter Henry.
