Patriots trade receiver Brandin Cooks to Rams for first-round pick

Brandin Cooks

And this also tells you that the Patriots had no intention of paying Cooks top receiver money after 2018, anyway. Schefter tweeted that the Patriots would be sending Brandin Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams along with a fourth-round pick.

With no first or second round pick in this years draft. Losing him in Super Bowl LII clearly didn't hurt. With the reigning NFC West champions trying to fill a need and continuing to be aggressive in the trade market to assemble a win-now roster, the Patriots likely saw an opportunity to extract maximum value for Cooks.

This offseason, theRams.com will be taking a look around the internet for the top Rams headlines of the day. The Giants would be far less likely to make that move than they would be to deal with the Bills, who could offer a better package.

The Patriots, who hope to sustain success as some of their star players enter the final stages of their careers, now have two first-round picks (No. 23, 31) and two second-rounders (No. 43, 63), along with a third-rounder (95), two sixth-rounders and a seventh-rounder this year. Of course, New England would have a lot of work to do if it wanted to move into position to draft Rosen. The Patriots still have Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell as their top three receivers, with Kenny Britt, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett providing depth. Expect the San Francisco 49ers and now, the New England Patriots, to be considered potential destinations. He hauled in 65 passes for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns, while his mark of 16.6 yards per reception and 18 catches of 20-plus yards ranked seventh and eighth in the National Football League, respectively.

Signing OBJ to a long-term deal and making him the NFL's highest-paid wide receiver are two things the Browns can absolutely accomplish. But it wasn't until a chance meeting between Belichick and Rams head coach Sean McVay that a deal started to materialize.

It was a scary moment at Golden 1 Center, as the crowd gasped and suddenly turned quiet as McCaw lay motionless on the ground. Warriors forward Draymond Green agreed that Carter had no motivation to hurt McCaw. "Last night was really terrifying".

Playing alongside established receivers Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods, and talented young tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett in the passing game, Cooks should get open plenty and will rarely see double coverage.

Firstly, they got more in return for Cooks than they did for Jimmy Garoppolo.

The Los Angeles Rams have traded away the opportunity to select early in the 2018 NFL Draft. While he wasn't always an efficient deep threat, Cooks helped to stretch the field with a speed element the team otherwise lacked.

The Los Angeles Chargers: The Rams' roommates in 2020 are going to have an even harder time gaining traction in their new city with the Rams soaking up so much of the oxygen.
