The Browns are not happy with the Texans’ extension of Brandin Cooks.
Cleveland has become quite the team after trading for Deshaun Watson and then opting to keep Baker Mayfield on the roster. Cleveland had acquired Amari Cooper from Dallas for a stupid-cheap price, and they were swinging for the fences in Brandin Cooks.
It was reported that the Browns had called the Texans to see if they could take another player in a trade, but it had no avail. Cleveland could’ve been unrealistically stacked at the position had things not broken down with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry.
Cleveland still has the weapons on the ground to be formidable, and Watson will be fresh after taking a year off. It’s not the worst thing in the world for the Browns to miss out, but they were trying to get one of Watson’s best targets he’s ever thrown to.
We’ll see what happens to Cleveland going forward.
