NFL Rumors: Brandin Cooks Traded From Rams To Texans For Draft Pick


April 9, 2020

The Houston Texans reportedly have found their replacement for DeAndre Hopkins.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Thursday reported the Texans have acquired wide receiver Brandin Cooks from the Los Angeles Rams. Rapoport and ESPN’s Lindsey Thiry had the reported trade details:

This deal comes almost a month following the Texans sending Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals.

Cooks is heading to his fourth team in just his seventh season. He is coming off his worst statistical season since his rookie year, as he averaged over 1,000 yards and seven touchdowns in the four seasons prior. Cooks will bring the remainder of his five-year, $80 million contract that he signed during the 2018 offseason to the Texans and hopefully find his game alongside quarterback Deshaun Watson.

This is a move that helps both teams, with the Texans coming out of the deal with a new No. 1 receiving option for their franchise quarterback.

Their receiving corps now includes Cooks, Randall Cobb, Kenny Stills and Will Fuller.
