New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks isn’t shy about asking for advice.

After Antonio Brown at a Nike event last year, Cooks began communicating with Brown and has used the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver as a mentor.

“How’d you get your feet work so good? How do you get in and out of your breaks so well? How do you seperate from defenders so well?” Cooks said in a video posted by Grit Media. “I remember asking him, ‘During the offseason can I spend some time with you, like a week or two, just to pick your brain and just be around you for a little bit and see how you work out and see some of the things you do?'”

Cooks said that he feels Brown is a good mentor since both are about the same size and play the game the same way.
