New Orleans Saints News

Boston Scott, Signs tender with Philly

Scott has signed his exclusive-rights tender with the Eagles, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With only two accredited seasons to his name, Scott will need to wait until next spring for his first shot at restricted free agency. He's a clear No. 2 on Philadelphia's backfield depth chart heading into April, but there's still plenty of time for the team to add competition before training camp. Scott averaged 4.7 yards on 80 carries and 8.5 yards on 25 catches last season, though he barely got any touches when Miles Sanders was healthy. Scott's four starts accounted for 51 of his 80 carries (64 percent) and nine of his 25 receptions (36 percent).

Willie Snead, Lands in Las Vegas

Snead agreed to a one-year contract with the Raiders on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Snead is the second veteran wideout to join the Raiders in free agency, alongside fellow potential starter John Brown. While Brown operates best as a deep threat, Snead's skillset lends him to usage in the slot, as does his reliability as a blocker in the running game. After Henry Ruggs and Bryan Edwards failed to live up expectations as immediate starters in their rookie campaigns, the addition of two veteran wideouts could alleviate some pressure from them as sophomores.

Dan Arnold, Moving on to Carolina

The Panthers and Arnold agreed to a two-year contract Friday, Peter Schrager of Fox Sports reports.

Analysis: Since the Cardinals plucked him off waivers in December 2019, Arnold developed a nice connection with Kyler Murray, reeling in 37 of 55 passes for 540 yards and six touchdowns in 19 games. Such production equates to an impressive 9.8 yards per target, with 16.2 percent of his catches going for scores. Arnold will slot in at the top of the Panthers' tight end depth chart.

Jared Cook, Replacing Hunter Henry in L.A.

Cook is signing a one-year contract with the Chargers, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The deal has a maximum value of $6 million, so the cap hit presumably will be less than that. Cook likely will be the passing-down replacement for Hunter Henry, who played 87 percent of the Chargers' offensive snaps in his 14 games last season. Cook wasn't too far from that type of workload in his two seasons with the Raiders (2017-18), but his snap share dipped to 55 percent and then 46 percent in two years for the Saints. He'll turn 34 in April, joining a team that has only Donald Parham and Matt Sokol under contract at tight end. Parham did make a few big plays last season, and there's still more than enough time for the Chargers to add more talent.

Justin Hardee, Reaches deal with Jets

Hardee signed a three-year deal with the Jets on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

Analysis: The exact terms of compensation were not disclosed at the time of signing. Hardee spent the first four seasons of his career with the Saints, primarily as a special teams contributor. He'll likely maintain that role with the Jets.
