Trautman has been a standout performer in the Saints' initial practices, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

The third-round rookie has gotten some work with the first-team offense and drew the attention of fellow tight end Jared Cook for his hands and route running. Trautman is unlikely to see much work in the passing game in his first season with New Orleans, but these promising early reports suggest he could be on track for future success.
