Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We aren't a 2-receiver offense. I don't think Tommy Lee is ready and it's a reach to think to Coleman can step it up and be Colston-like. Ted Ginn is just a guy to sub in once in a while ...

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

We aren't a 2-receiver offense. I don't think Tommy Lee is ready and it's a reach to think to Coleman can step it up and be Colston-like. Ted Ginn is just a guy to sub in once in a while at this point in his career. We don't need a guy just like Cooks but we need another receiving weapon.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Not the deal I had hoped for. That being said I think that the fact that Cooks and his new agent Let this become public killed our leverage in the deal.
Cooks was a Malcontent had lost the respect of his teammates.
I am disappointed that we didn't get Butler and# 32 and swap Cooks and our #2 that was rumored.
Drafting at 32 could easily net us some extra picks
Lets Move on.

In my best Fred Sandford voice...

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Just echoing others, but Cooks was a luxury. We won't go over the top enough to keep him happy here. That's not against him, but this was all about the fact that we were not now nor ever going to pay him like Julio Jones. We did him a favor and saved ourselves a headache that had already started, and we got a couple picks in a defense-rich draft.

That's a win. I have a feeling we like somebody in the draft a lot...just guessing...

Seriously speaking, Sean Payton and the Saints organization must have really wanted to get rid of Brandin.

Ask yourself what is the difference between pick #32 & pick #33
