See post above

Watson had been in the league 9 years before joining the Saints. Spent two years as a back up. Plays full time with Drew for a year and put up career numbers at 34/35.

Remember 6 of them years in the league were with Brady

Wilson's been playing with a bad oline and the seahawks are trying to utilize a offense that does not fit them.
And Cooks isnt a number 1
He is just about 5'10 and no team was willing to better the offer the Pats did. The fact that teams would offer a straight up mid round 1st shows teams dont think he is worth what he will be asking for next year.

He is a complentary piece. A Wes Welker that will need Gronk or another true 1 receiver to give him space to work.

The Saints were not paying him north of 10ml a year they would have needed to

he will have 85-90 catches next year and 1200 yards. We got hosed. Good thing we signed low energy when we did, 7-9 could have got away

Basically we got a second round pick for the 7th most receiving yards in the league last year. Even more impressive is he did that with MT being 9th.

Drew has shown year after year he can make players better


If Cooks was as great as some people want to say why were teams not knocking down the door offering a mid round first or late 1 and 4th.

A malcontent is a malcontent. Cooks bugged the crap out of me when he complained about not being more involved after the team won games.

After some consideration, I like this trade. No big contract for the soon to be 5'9" second fiddle and five picks in the first three rounds in this year's draft.

Re: Brandin Cooks Officially Traded to Patriots

Here's what I think is strange. It seems like the Pats have too many receivers now, as far as I know. Hogan, Amendola, Edelman, Cooks, Malcolm Mitchell, not to mention Gronk, Lewis, White. Couldn't have we gotten Amendola in return? He's a skilled pro.
