Lions coach Jim Caldwell said he expects star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be at organized team activities, which start this week.

Suh skipped the team's voluntary minicamp last month. He has stayed away from voluntary workouts before during his career, and the two-time All-Pro always has gotten himself physically ready to play.

When asked Sunday if Suh would be with the team at OTAs, Caldwell replied: “Do I know that he'll be here? I would anticipate that he would be here.”

Caldwell said Suh has great leadership ability, and to have him back with the group will be helpful.

Suh is entering the last year of his contract.

Saints sign 1st-round pick

The Saints signed first-round pick Brandin Cooks. The wide receiver from Oregon State was the 20th selection in the draft. Cooks won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top wide receiver.

As a junior last season, he set Pac-12 records with 128 catches for 1,730 yards. The 5-foot-10, 184-pound Cooks also broke the school record with 16 touchdowns receiving.

Glenn joins Browns staff

The Browns hired former NFL cornerback Aaron Glenn as an assistant defensive backs coach. Glenn was a first-round draft pick in 1994 by the Jets out of Texas A&M.

He started 176 games during his career with New York, Houston, Dallas, Jacksonville and New Orleans. Glenn had 41 career interceptions.
