One team
What about the others?

If Cooks is that good and the Pats stole him for Peanuts why did nobody else make an offer that was better

The Browns have above 76 picks so why didnt the offer something as they habe no WR. Plenty of teams had the ammo to make a better offer,nobody did. The price is made by the market. There wasnt a big market for him.

The team has been stagnant for 3 years now. And Cooks was an expendable piece that wasn't going to be extended. So improve the defense.


Is it guaranteed no,but uts not in NE either.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

I'm beyond ****** this is a horrible deal for the Saints and it gives a deep threat to the Patriots. Way to go Loomis

And we all know the Saints are going to screw up these 2 draft picks up too

So we get what basically an early second and 4th round pick for our 4th rounder and former 1st round receiver.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

How is a 1st rounder considered an early 2nd?

I'm more pissed about making the current Champions stronger than I am about what we received for Cooks.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

History says that we will get the short end of the sticks. Ginn is not the same player he was two seasons ago. He has gotten slower and took advantage of a lot of one on one coverages that he saw in Carolina. He will not see that in N.O. and he has never shown the ability to go up a get the ball. We are one injury at WR from being in bad shape. I can already see the ball sailing through Ginn's hand on a short route and going back the other way. I hope I'm wrong but I see us as getting the short end of the sticks on this trade.

I don't care what anyone says....we have a problem in our locke room culture especially on offense. Too many players the last 5 seasons have had problems where they have come out and said something to the media. We cannot afford to screw this up like we did two seasons ago. The Patriots instantly got better and all we have is potential. If we want to win now we cant draft projects and we can't afford anymore 1st Rd picks that end up injured for 3/4 of the season.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Who care if the Pats got better if we are still 7-9 and cant get out the division. Worry about the Pats when we have a team and DEFENSE food enough to get to the dance

Great trade. The Saints got a 1st rd pick, saved $1 million, and moved on from a disgruntled player who was going to walk after the 2017 season.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

This is ridiculous. I'm sorry, but I'm not even going to try to put a positive spin on this. We get the lowest possible first round pick, and a 3rd rounder, which doesn't exactly "sweeten" the deal very much to begin with, but then we have to give THEM a 4th?

What the crap is that about?
