One of the biggest names still available on the trade market ahead of tomorrow’s deadline is Brandin Cooks.
The Houston Texans wide receiver is no stranger to being traded, as he’s played with four different teams and had success with each of them. That likely has multiple teams interested in taking a chance on the 29-year-old wideout, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, his services will come with at a heft price.
Schefter has stated that the Texans will only listen to offers with at least a second-round pick for Cooks, and there appears to be three teams who remain interested: the New York Giants, Los Angeles Rams, and Minnesota Vikings.
If Cooks were to be traded, it would be the fourth time in his NFL career where he’s dealt. The first came in March 2017, when he was shipped from the Saints to the Patriots for a first-round pick.
Then, the following offseason, the Patriots shipped Cooks and a fourth-rounder to the Rams for first- and sixth-round picks. And two years later, he was on the move again, this time going to the Texans (along with a 4th rounder) for a second-round pick that the Rams used to take Van Jefferson.
Cooks currently has two years left on his contract after 2022. He’s set to become a free agent in 2025 and is coming off the sixth 1,000-yard season of his career in 2021.
