The Los Angeles Rams are having one of the best offseasons in the NFL. On Tuesday, the Rams acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks in a trade with the New England Patriots.
Cooks, who was acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints last off-season, was acquired by the Rams for the No. 23rd overall pick in April’s draft. Besides sending the 24-year-old receiver, the Patriots sent their fourth-round pick to Los Angeles.
The Rams are also sending a sixth-round draft pick to New England.
This off-season, Los Angeles has acquired four former first-round draft picks. However, Cooks is the first former first-rounder on offense.
Cooks, who will be entering his fifth season in the NFL, appeared in 16 games, including 15 starts with the Patriots last season. He had 65 receptions for 1,082 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
In his final game with the Patriots, Cooks was knocked out of the Super Bowl LII loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with a concussion in the second quarter. He took a hard hit from Eagles safeties Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod on a play at 13:02 in the quarter.
Prior to joining the Patriots, he spent four seasons before being traded, along with a 2017 fourth-round draft pick, to the Patriots for their 2017 first-round draft pick and third-round draft pick. He appeared in 42 games, including 32 starts in New Orleans.
He had 215 receptions there for 2,861 receiving yards. He had 20 touchdowns.
