Rams reportedly trade WR Cooks to Texans for pick

Wide receiver Brandin Cooks is known for his speed and he has sure done a lot of moving lately, reportedly traded by the Los Angeles Rams to the Houston Texans.

The Rams have agreed to traded Cooks to the Texans for a second-round pick while sending a future fourth-rounder to Houston, according to ESPN. The Texans will be the fourth team that Cooks has played for in his six-year career.

He will help fill the void left by the Texans' shock trade of superstar receiver DeAndre Hopkins, who was sent to the Arizona Cardinals last month for running back David Johnson and two draft picks.

Cooks spent his first three seasons with the New Orleans Saints before he was dealt to the New England Patriots prior to the 2017 season. He spent one season in New England and was traded to the Rams in April 2018.

Los Angeles signed Cooks to an $81million contract extension through 2023 before he played a game for the team.

Cooks had his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season in 2018 but declined last season to a career-low 42 receptions and 583 yards with two touchdowns. He also missed two games due to concussion issues.
