Bill O’Brien’s Texans are making extra strikes and wide receiver Brandin Cooks is on the hunch once extra.
The Texans are bringing in one other dynamic wide receiver, as they’re within the formulation of trading for Cooks from the Rams, NFL Community Insider Ian Rapoport reported.
Houston will compose Cooks and a future fourth-spherical receive in replace for sending a 2d-spherical receive to the Rams, Rapoport reported.
Or not it’s the fourth team for Cooks and this will seemingly be the fourth time he’s been traded in his profession, because the Texans add him to a deep wide receiver corps however one absent of well-known particular person DeAndre Hopkins, who changed into previously traded this offseason to the Cardinals.
At the delivery a first-spherical replacement by the Saints in 2014, Cooks will now salvage been traded three occasions for two first-spherical picks and a 2d-spherical replacement after stints with Contemporary Orleans, the Patriots and Rams. When the Saints drafted Cook, it changed into which capacity that by blueprint of a receive bought by blueprint of replace with the Cardinals.
Cooks posted 42 catches for 583 yards and two rankings in 2019 — largely the least productive season of his six-year profession.
Mute, the 26 year primitive has to be a solid addition to a Texans team that appears to be like to salvage a effectively-rounded offense. Trading away Hopkins — one of many game’s elite — will seemingly continuously be a head-scratcher, however now quarterback Deshaun Hopkins has wide receivers Cooks, Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Kenny Stills along with tight end Darren Fells and working backs David Johnson and Duke Johnson.
As for the Rams, while they mustn’t salvage a first-spherical draft receive, they now salvage two 2d-spherical choices and two within the third spherical.
