The Los Angeles Rams are trading wide receiver Brandin Cooks to the Houston Texans, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. The Rams are giving up Cooks and a future fourth-round pick in exchange for Houston's second-rounder this year.
The Texans will be Cooks' fourth team in seven NFL seasons, as he moves from Drew Brees to Tom Brady to Jared Goff to Deshaun Watson. Life for an NFL wide receiver could be a lot worse.
For the Texans, it might help to simplify things by combining this and the DeAndre Hopkins trade into one big deal, as done here by Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice:
- Brandin Cooks
- David Johnson
- 2nd round pick (40th overall)
- 2021 4th round pick
- 2022 4th round pick
Texans gave up:
- DeAndre Hopkins
- 2nd round pick (57th overall)
- 4th round pick (131st overall)
