Following Friday’s practice, Murray said that his feet hurt due to the fact he was forced to wear the wrong cleats. 

“My feet hurt a little bit,” Murray said, via ESPN.com. “It’s been a long time since I put cleats on. I’ve been running around. The cleats were pretty new.”

Saints

Saints TEs coach Dan Campbell said that Jared Cook the team will use some of Jimmy Graham‘s old plays to get him involved in their offense. 

We’re going to do what (Cook) does best, we’re going to use those plays, but let’s see everything he can do. Let’s test him,” said Campbell, via Luke Johnson.

Campbell called Cook a “phenomenal athlete” and pointed out the veteran’s speed despite being 32-years old.
