Barring someone we love being there at #32 , #33 is actually a better pick . You have all night to work a trade for some team moving up .

I see how Patriots operate, they reel you in with a nice beneficial trade like
Hoomanawanui then they sucker punch with this BC trade, now they want to f*>k us with a Malcolm Butler trade. Loomis or Payton whichever, need to get their head back in the game and stop being so desperate

5th year option. Pick is at the end of round 1, enticing for some other team to offer additional picks to jump in that spot.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

So we traded Cooks and our 118th pick, to move up 15 picks and gain a 32nd pick.

The Patriots won this trade easily, they didn't send us a defensive player, they got a player worth much more than the 32nd pick and for good measure they got a 4th from us. The great SP and mickey loomis duo strike again.

If we had atleast kept our 4th and gained their 3rd as well as the 32nd I could have lived with it, or if they sent us a defender. They fleeced us and SP/Loomis allowed it.

Well the option here were really between getting a first rounder and some change in return for Cooks or having him for another year and then probably cutting him for cap reasons because there is NO way we would ever have paid him the $10M per year he will command.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

I still don't see how we lost much in this trade. Cooks was a deep threat guy only. He wasn't our so called #1 WR or even our so called #2. It isn't like he was a QB either.

He was a guy who started to show he didn't like playing here and was going to be due a big pay day eventually.

Could we have done better... probably but it is what the market gave us to move him. We really have to move some O players that we could live without and as much as I like him, looking at it as business this is a move we have to make to get some D talent.

It all comes down to how this pick is used.
