Brandin Cooks has been a highly-discussed name ahead of this year’s NFL trade deadline.
Multiple teams have been mentioned as potential landing spots for the Texans wide receiver — including the Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants.
Cooks, 29, has recorded six 1k-seasons with 49 TDs. I’m told if moved, he only wants to go to a contender.

The Green Bay Packers are reportedly considered a “dark-horse” candidate to get a deal done. According to NFL insider Jordan Schultz, Cooks only wants to be traded to a Super Bowl contender.
Cooks has six NFL seasons with more than 1,000 yards receiving. Through six games this season, the former Saints/Patriots/Rams wideout has just 281 yards and one receiving touchdown.
There’s no question Cooks’ talent could be better utilized with another organization this season. It’s just a matter of if the 29-year-old wideout actually gets traded, and where.
The Packers have a clear need at the wide receiver position following the departure of superstar pass catcher Davante Adams. The NFL trade deadline hits this coming Tuesday, November 1.
