Id give them their 3rd back but not the 2nd
I hope the leave Butler trade alone. The guy isn't that good. Malcolm is 5'10, how in the hell he going to face the 6'5 giants? He run a 4.6, can you see him keeping up with desean Jackson, Corey brown, & Julio? The guy fits a cover 2 scheme. He can't play man like DA like to run

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

I just hate that we gave up a pick. #32 and a 3rd is a pretty fair deal for a proven top 10 commodity. Why in the hell did we have to give up anything? I had a feeling we would come out on the short end of the deal if we dealt with the pats..sigh

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Plenty of rumours of a seperate trade for Butler

He isnt worth a 1st imo.
His contract will ne huge and even if he walks youll only get a 3 in comp if you sign no big FA.

Could see Saints sending R2 to NE for Butler + 3rd

Any trade you do with the Pats your getting no vasalined. The pressure is on the F.O. to make the right pick. It still could turn out in our favor but the odds are not looking good.

Yeah....we'll probably give them back the 32nd pick and the 3rd round pick we got for Cooks and trade them for Butler. LOL!!

In all seriousness...I'm glad we got a trade, but I was hoping for something more then the 32nd pick. Then we gave them a 4th rounder? IDK about that. Whatever tho. I hope we land some good talent and playmakers in the draft.

Sean has officially proven how much he wants to get on his knees for his idol. The pats will not be negatively impacted by this trade. Cooks won't complain on a team that wins 12 games a year.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

a number 1 and 3rd which are really a 2nd and 4th. I still think it's a good deal. Picks 11, 32, 42, 76, 96, 196, 229 we are going to get a great defense this year. We could still get Butler too. Wow we are really putting together a great offseason = GREAT SEASON!

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

A pretty fair assessment from WalterFootball...

Patriots acquire WR Brandin Cooks, 4th-rounder from Saints for 1st- and 3rd-round picks
My apologies for being slow with these grades Friday evening. I just got home from a wedding rehearsal dinner (my fiancee's sister is getting married tomorrow), and I'll get to all of the grades shortly.

I have to say that despite it being speculated for days now, I'm still shocked that this deal went through. It's kind of crazy that the Patriots will have Brandin Cooks in their offense. I didn't even think they'd be in the market for a receiver because they had Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell and maybe Michael Floyd on the roster (plus Rob Gronkowski), but Bill Belichick apparently thought differently.

It's going to be fun to watch Tom Brady have a new weapon like Cooks. He hasn't had a dynamic, downfield threat like Cooks since Randy Moss. It might be instinctive to point out that Cooks could decline because he won't be playing with Drew Brees anymore, until you remember that he'll now be paired with Brady, and there theoretically shouldn't be a drop-off. The price is a bit steep for my blood, but at least New England didn't have to surrender Malcolm Butler.

I like the move for the Patriots, but I think the Saints are the winners of this deal. Cooks made it known that he didn't want to be on the roster anymore, and the Saints have two strong receivers without him in Michael Thomas and Willie Snead. New Orleans now has two first-round selections in a very deep draft, so they can use those picks to improve their woeful defense.

Grade for Patriots - B+
Grade for Saints - A-
