I thought Cam had his best season for us last year. I haven't read what he wrote, is it bad??

are you listening to yourself?

We got a deal doesn't matter what it was... the deal is done. lol.

There is no price on Cooks head except the one you get/accept/take what every term you want to use. That is the market value of a player and that is what you can get for a player. I personally don't think there was a better deal on the table for a one deminsional WR.

There are other factors at play including a contract. NE needs to assume they may have his services for only one year. You fact that into the equation as well.

FACT: it is the right time to move him. He stays and we won't get anything for him when he moves on.

I saw what Jordan said and to me he was being sarcastic

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Cooks is not one dimensional. He's not a big body WR but he is easily a top 10 WR. He can go up and get the ball, go across the middle, and go deep. You have to remember that he is only 23.

A malcontent that was gone next year for a big asking price. We didn't have much leverage and 31 other teams probably knew it.

I'm guessing the extended wait Friday was we were trying to get the best deal. This was the best deal on the table

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Cooks was an expendable asset. To get a first round pick in return was a win. Thomas has emerged as a number one and Snead is more than capable, or whoever decide to play there, to hold down the 2 spot with the way our offense is run.

I don't think we utilized Cooks to his full potential and I don't believe we ever were. With the holes on this team, it was smart to move him now while we could get the return that we got before his price tag continues to rise and his trade compensation decreases.

Let's get this defense rolling... scoring points has never been the issue here. Hopefully we make good of drafting and developing this draft pick.
saintfan and AsylumGuido like this.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

This part is true, and how many times have we said we should have got something etc. From that standpoint I agree, but think we could have got more if we had waited. I think the deal would have been great if we had got the third with nothing in return to them

Still feel liked we got arse raped, but only time will tell. I hope 32 is great defensive help and BC does nothing much up in NE

See at first I thought so as well but the more I look at it... it not the greatest trade but it isn't horrible either IMO.

However the latest development of we could trade the 4th pick back in that round pick up something... NE is going to lose that pick no matter what so it doesn't matter if we move the pick pack.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

I'm comfortable with the trade now as well. At this point I'd like to see us add Demarcus Ware on a 1 year deal and pick up Eddie Lacy.
