How the Brandin Cooks trade reportedly fell into place

How the Brandin Cooks trade reportedly fell into place

- The Oregon State product is also one of just three players with 1,000 or more receiving yards and five-or-more receiving touchdowns in each of the last three seasons. Cooks also posted 10 catches for 155 yards and a touchdown in the playoffs.

The Rams will also receive the Patriots' fourth-rounder and send a sixth to Foxboro to consummate their acquisition of Cooks, the 24-year-old blazer coming off his third consecutive 1,000-yard campaign, a one and done with the Patriots. Rapoport added the McVay "coveted" Cooks, and the fact that L.A. gave up the 23rd overall pick in this month's draft to get him is evidence enough.

In another off-season move in which the Patriots lose a key part of their team, Brandin Cooks and the 136th overall pick have been traded to the Rams in exchange for the 23rd and 198th overall picks in the 2018 National Football League draft. The good news is that Cooks shouldn't hit free agency next year. The wide receiver room for Los Angeles now has Cooks, Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Tavon Austin, and Pharoh Cooper in it. That move ostensibly took them out of the running for an even bigger blockbuster trade involving Odell Beckham Jr. Expect the San Francisco 49ers and now, the New England Patriots, to be considered potential destinations.

As long as the Patriots have Gronkowski, Edelman, Chris Hogan, and James White healthy, Brady and the offense will probably be just fine.

Cooks was entering the final year of his contract, and the Patriots had exercised the fifth-year option on Cooks rookie contract, which will pay him $8.4 million in 2018.

New England has acquired another pick in the upcoming draft by moving one of their receivers. Rumors are rampant that there is friction between him and Rob Gronkowski and the star tight end might be traded, as well. In the majority of Belichick and Brady's eight Super Bowl appearances, they competed with a wideout group similar, or inferior, to this one, so wide receiver doesn't exactly feel like a screaming need.

Turkey and Russian Federation have put aside their traditional rivalries and differences on regional issues to forge strong economic ties.

That gives coach Bill Belichick the ability to go shopping for a young prospect or perhaps to make a deal for a veteran.

The Rams would like to not have a repeat of this past offseason where they lost their top receiver who they had traded for the previous offseason.

The Los Angeles Rams have traded away the opportunity to select early in the 2018 NFL Draft. It seems that the Giants asking price was too high as they wanted two first-round picks to start the conversation. While he wasn't always an efficient deep threat, Cooks helped to stretch the field with a speed element the team otherwise lacked.
