Between the lines: Five observations from Monday’s Saints practice

1 The Saints struggled in the rainy conditions, making it a sloppy affair. There were at least four fumbled snaps and two other fumbles on the field.

2 Joe Morgan had a highlight moment during 7-on-7s when he dove to reel in a touchdown pass from Luke McCown.

3 Brandin Cooks turned a short pass from Luke McCown into a big gain during a third-and-short drill. He later caught a short pass over the middle and ran it down the field for a touchdown, beating Keenan Lewis to the end zone.

4 Kenny Stills (quad) ramped up his rehab work by doing some work between the cones. Drew Brees later threw passes to Stills with Champ Bailey in coverage.

5 Rookie safety Vinnie Sunseri was on the field when the first-team defense went to its dime package.
