The Saints have signed first-round pick Brandin Cooks, a wide receiver from Oregon State who was the 20th selection in the draft. Also in the Saints camp, they signed former Tulane player Devon Walker, who is paralyzed from the neck down, to an honorary free-agent contract. Coach Sean Payton said Walker, who was injured making a tackle in 2012, was an inspiration to the Saints. Walker graduated Saturday with a degree in cell and molecular biology.
