Brandin Cooks News

  • Brandin Cooks wants out · Jan 14, 2023

    Veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks has informed the Texans he would like to be traded.

    Cooks, the well traveled but productive wide receiver, wanted out at the trade deadline as well. After spending time with New Orleans, the Patriots, then the Rams, Cooks once threatened to retire if Houston sent him packing. Now facing a total rebuild with the Texans, Cooks has obviously completely changed his tune. Poor quarterback play finally caught up with him as he was only able to post a 57/699/3 line after somehow eclipsing 1,000 yards his first two seasons with the team. It's likely the team grants him his wish this off-season. Cooks has dropped all the way down to WR49 and could really use a change of scenery.

  • Brandin Cooks at practice · Nov 9, 2022

    Receiver Brandin Cooks is at practice but is not taking part in drills.

    After missing last week due to a coach's decision, Cooks looks to be on the outside looking in for play in week 10. Disgruntled after not being traded, the dynamic receiver is in a no-win situation and the team missed an opportunity to in deciding to keep the veteran as their rebuild continues. Not a free agent until 2025, the odds would seem to favor the Texans parting ways prior to the 2023 NFL Draft but there remains a chance they, instead, lean into their top target as they address the quarterback position. Cooks is listed as DLF's WR42.

  • Brandin Cooks won't play · Nov 3, 2022

    Receiver Brandin Cooks is not expected to be on the field tonight when the Texans square off against the Eagles

    Cooks does have a hand injury but he's sitting due to "personal reasons" after expressing frustration with not being traded. The oft-traded receiver has been regularly on the move despite a career of 1,000-yard campaigns though 2022 is trending to be a career-low for any season not shortened by injury. Now 29, Cooks would could have moved on to greener pastures but instead will now remain mired in the poor Texans' offense for the foreseeable future with the strong potential for a new quarterback in 2023. Found as DLF's WR44, Brandin Cooks remains under contract through 2024.

  • Brandin Cooks could be traded · Oct 29, 2022

    Texans receiver Brandin Cooks' name continues to be mentioned ahead of the NFL trade deadline

    Most recently, the Rams have bene connected with the Texans, a move which would most certainly make sense for all involved. Odell Beckham Jr. is still in play for the Rams as well but Cooks could provide similar upside and without the question marks surrounding injury status. Cooks is having a sub-par season to date, tallying a 28/281/1 stat line through six games. A move to the Rams would be a lateral move but with a modicum of increased upside potential should he quickly develop chemistry with Matthew Stafford. Cooks is listed as DLF's WR44.
