Brandin Cooks is NOT happy about Mark Ingram being traded.
In what can only be seen as an abrupt ending of a friendship, Brandin Cooks is not happy about the latest trade by Houston Texans General Manager Nick Caserio. On Wednesday afternoon, Ian Rapoport reported that the former New Orleans Saints running back is headed home to recreate that one-two punch with Alvin Kamara.
No compensation details have been revealed as of this writing, but this is the frustration of the entire season pouring out from Cooks here. After a six-game losing streak, there’s bound to be some venting and expression of feelings. This may just be a sign of things to come for the Texans.
On top of the Deshaun Watson potential trade, and Ingram being shipped, does that mean Brandin Cooks is next?
Is Brandin Cooks giving us an insight into what might happen with him before the trade deadline?
There are a ton of teams who could use a wide receiver with Cooks’ skillset. Green Bay, New England, Baltimore, and whatever team you could name might have an interest in the former Oregon State product.
Cooks has been traded three times in his career, only one time less than the record holder Eric Dickerson. If he does get traded to a contender that can use him, he can be a good high-end WR2. Cooks was up there in the receiving yardage leaders early in the season, so he still has plenty left in the tank.
The fire sale may just be starting for the Texans with the Ingram trade. This offense is going to get even more brutal to watch if Cooks is traded as well. This might be the most interesting trade deadline that the Houston Texans have ever been a part of. Keep your eyes on Cooks and what happens before November 2nd.
