Brandin Cooks is a very wanted wide receiver in the league.
On Sunday, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported on SportsCenter that the Texans have received “multiple calls” from teams interested in trading for the veteran WR.
“I was told that the Texans have received multiple calls on Cooks,” Fowler said, via Bleacher Report. “That teams have some interest. He’s a classic deep threat that could fit in a lot of offenses. He has a concussion history…a bit of an issue. He’s been traded a lot, but he can always play. He’s traded a lot because he’s very good and he’s very fast.“
One team that seems to be interested in him is the Browns, who now have Deshaun Watson on the team.
The 28-year-old is heading into the final year of his contract and will make $12.5 million next season.
The Texans may look to trade him since they are just now starting their rebuild stage after trading Deshaun Watson to the Browns. It’s unlikely he’s considered a piece of the long-term plans.
Despite producing six 1,000-yard seasons over his eight-year NFL career, Cooks has already played for four NFL teams.
In 2021, Cooks appeared in 16 games for the Texans and caught 90 passes for 1,037 yards receiving and six touchdowns to go along with 21 yards rushing.
