Patriots Trade Cooks to Rams for 1st Round Draft Pick
Wednesday, April 04, 2018
“Patriots and Rams have discussed a potential Brandin Cooks trade for over a month, before Rams and Giants discussed a potential Odell Beckham Jr. trade. Rams like this situation better,” wrote Schefter on Twitter.
Schefter adds that the Patriots are “now armed with double 1’s, double 2’s and in prime position to move up in the draft and select a QB if it so chooses.”
Cooks was in the final year of his contract and was due $8.5 million this season.
Cooks With Patriots
Cooks came to the Patriots in March of 2017 via a trade with the New Orleans Saints.
New England gave up the 32nd overall pick and the 103rd overall pick in the deal.
In one season with New England, Cooks hauled in 65 catches for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns.
In the playoffs, he hauled in 10 catches for 155 yards, including one catch in the Super Bowl before getting injured.
Wide Receiver Depth
The Patriots receiver depth chart now includes Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Kenny Britt and Malcolm Mitchell, with Rob Gronkowski at tight end.
Both Edelman and Mitchell are returning from injuries that forced them to miss the entire 2017-18 season.
