Patriots Trade for NO Saints Wide Reciever Brandin Cooks
The best team in the NFL might have just gotten better.
Multiple sources are saying that the Patriots have traded traded for Saints receiver Brandin Cooks on Friday night. To acquire Cooks, the Patriots sent the Saints a package of draft picks: the last pick in the first round and a third rounder. In addition to landing Cooks, the Patriots also snagged the Saints’ fourth-round pick.
Cooks, still only 23, has averaged 81 catches, 1,155.5 yards, and 8.5 touchdowns per season since 2015. In that span, he’s also averaging 14.27 yards per reception. He’ll be joining an offense that already features Tom Brady (the greatest quarterback of all time), Rob Gronkowski (the best tight end in the game), Julian Edelman (a dependable underneath receiver), and two pass-catching backs in James White and Dion Lewis.
