The New England Patriots have traded their 1st round pick and 3rd round pick for star WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th round pick from the New Orlean Saints.
Cooks was said to be unhappy in New Orleans but many reports conflict that story. I am quite sure that Drew Brees will miss having Brandin Cook on his team, as he was a deep threat and YAC beast. Id say the biggest surprise of this deal was that Malcolm Butler was not involved, but he is still rumored to be targeted in other trades, but we will have to wait and see about that.
With Tom Brady at the helms again, Gronkowski back and healthy, James White getting better and the grit of Julian Edelman and his fellow wideouts, this offense will be firing on all cylinders. The NFL got a little more scared of the New england Patriots today, if that was even possible at this point.
Hopefully by tomorrow we can add Dont'a hightower to that list. Losing Bennett, *Blount, and Logan Ryan isn’t ideal but the Patriots are doing what they do best by going by “Next man up” motto, these just happen to be pro bowl caliber talent. See you in Minnesota next February!
