The Saints have signed Simmie Cobbs off of the Washington Redskins’ practice squad.  He was an all-Big Ten wide receiver at Indiana and caught 72 passes for 841 yards and 8 touchdowns last year. The 23 year old is 6ft4, 220 pounds and take the roster spot of Erik Swoope, whose stay in New Orleans lasted less than 24 hours. 

Cobbs has yet to see ant action in the regular season but did grab seven passes for 109 yards with one score in the preseason. 

“It’s a dream come true to play with a guy like that (Drew Brees) and have a chance to learn something that he’s been doing for years and years,” Cobbs said.
