Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It seems they wanted Cooks and R2 for 18 We now have 5 of the first 105 picks. Then nothing through 4/5. Really hoping they sit on their hsnds through them rounds unless somebody badly falls rather than using future ...

We now have 5 of the first 105 picks. Then nothing through 4/5.

Really hoping they sit on their hsnds through them rounds unless somebody badly falls rather than using future picks again.

This was not a bad deal at all.
Not sure anyone is acting like he is randy Moss, but a proven player with back to back 1000 yard seasons for a "possible" contributor IMO has a high potential for failing in an epic manner.

I hated that bow and arrow thing anyway. Ginn will do fine.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

The Saints were not paying Cooks after his rookie deal. It makes sense to move him. If thats what they have accepted i think it shows teams were not willing to shell out big for him

Teams have seen Saints WR fall flat outside of New Orleans and his size means he needs an accurate QB.

He will do well in NE but if he doesn't get the ball and starts whinging he will gind himself in Cleveland or Buffalo pretty quick

You don't get a 1st rounder and an early 3rd for a player that sucks.

Its a deep draft for defense, we need defense, and now we have 5 picks in the 1st 3 rounds.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

WTF did we not get Butler in the deal? This deal is basically just losing a receiver and getting a pick where we have no chance to get anything of value really. What's the difference between a third rounder and fourth rounder?

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

How much you want to bet he will be on another team next year. No way are the Pats going to pay that bill. He'll be in a Browns uniform a year from now.

I'm fine with it. Good draft for D. We can likely create an average one with this move.
