Brandin Cooks Rumored to Be Subject of Trade Talks with Eagles, Titans

Of course, there's so many that fall in the "in between" category, and that's where I've mainly been with the latest Brandin Cooks trade rumors from the New Orleans Saints. The proposed package would include the Saints sending back a draft pick.

The Saints are negotiating from a position of power because they would be content to keep Cooks as part of one of top groups of wide receivers in the National Football League, along with Michael Thomas and Willie Snead.

The Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles are also reportedly interested in trading for Cooks.

Bill Belichick is a big fan of Cooks' game.

Cooks led New Orleans in receiving yardage in 2016 but was second to rookie Michael Thomas in both catches and touchdowns.

"I've said this before: Brandin is someone we value tremendously in our system". It isn't a case where the Saints don't need Cooks, but rather a confidence that Brees could elevate another receiver after a deal was made.

The Philadelphia Eagles are looking to provide wide receiver help for Carson Wentz, who's pictured at Lincoln Financial Field on January 1, 2017 in Philadelphia.

Cooks has 17 touchdown receptions the past two seasons. I wouldn't say he's on the trade block. Then there's Cooks, who caught 78 balls for 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns last season. The Patriots will have plenty of cap space this season, at almost $59 million, so they could afford to bring in the veteran wideout on a short term deal.

If the deal is done, Cooks better hopes he doesn't turn into the next Jimmy Graham, the tight end traded two years ago to Seattle. Their ultimate goal is to topple the defending Super Bowl Champions, the mighty New England Patriots. The sources in question are most likely in the Saints front office, and they have every reason to do what they can to boost Cooks's value. If Jon Robinson feels forced to take a receiver with one of his two first round picks, it greatly limits his options on draft day.

Yesterday I was good with them giving up the 18th pick to get Cooks. By trading for Cooks, the Eagles will have added a wide receiver who they will eventually have to pay top dollar for but who would give them a low-priced player in 2017. It's the second consecutive season Cooks has produced over 1,000 yards. A few teams are eyeing trades involving high draft picks and proven players.
