Wide receiver Brandin Cooks has not played in a game with the Los Angeles Rams. Days before the team opens training camp, the Rams have signed him to an extension.

Cooks will now be with the team for the next six seasons. He was acquired by the team in March in a trade with the New England Patriots with one year left on his contract.

He’ll now have six-years in Los Angeles. He is getting $16 million per season under the new extension.

The $16 million average is the fourth-most among wide receivers. It ties him with former Ram Sammy Watkins, who signed a three-year deal with the Kansas City Chiefs in the offseason.

Cooks spent the first three years of his career with the New Orleans Saints. In 2017, the Saints traded Cooks to the Patriots for a first-round draft pick.

In April 2017, just weeks after acquiring Cooks in a deal, the Patriots picked up his fifth-year option. That option season will be for the upcoming 2018 season.

He played in 16 games, including 15 starts, with the Patriots during his lone season in Foxborough, Mass. He had 65 receptions for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns. The 24-year-old also had nine rushes for 40 yards.

Cooks, who was knocked out of his final game with the Patriots, as he suffered a concussion early in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles, as he had 10 receptions for 155 yards in three playoff games.

In three seasons with the Saints, he appeared in 42 games, including 32 starts. He also had 280 receptions for 3,943 yards and 27 touchdowns. He also had 21 carries for 121 yards and an additional touchdown.
