Patriots trade WR Cooks to Rams for 1st-round pick

Kudos as well to Les Snead. New England is giving a fourth-round choice to the Rams. The deal includes New England also sending a fourth-round pick in return for the 23rd overall selection in the first round and a sixth-round pick.
However, CBS SportsNFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports this move does not set up the Patriots to chase after OBJ. They will have Kenny Britt, Phillip Dorsett, Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Cody Hollister, Riley McCarron, Malcolm Mitchell, Cordarrelle Patterson, and Matthew Slater in camp as wideouts.
Cooks has been an impact player throughout the early course of his career, recording three straight seasons of at least 1,000 yards receiving since 2015.
He was not essential to New England's success, though, and was under team control for only this year. He eventually did not play a single game in the 2017 season.
Notice that the Pats once again are refusing to pay top dollar for receivers. That plethora of picks will allow them to get young in a handful of areas in a hurry. They attempted to get him from the New Orleans Saints past year before the Patriots completed a deal. Back then, the choice, at 21, was edge man Chandler Jones.
Of course, the Saints used the No. 32 pick on right tackle Ryan Ramczyk, so it seems both the Saints and Patriots managed to win the trade a year ago.
Having traded away former backup passer Jimmy Garoppolo to the 49ers last October, the Patriots are expected to draft a quarterback to succeed Tom Brady following his inevitable - though consistently pushed back - retirement.
If rumors are to be believed, the Patriots have a real interest in UCLA QB Josh Rosen. Some have suggested they could be loading up picks to target Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., although ESPN's Adam Schefter downplayed the idea.
Cooks will be asked to do all that and more with the Rams, who haven't let up on their intense offseason pursuit of a championship roster.
Cooks is scheduled to earn about $8.5 million this season in the final year of his rookie contract. For a man who loves to manipulate the draft by moving up, down, and adding picks for future drafts, this gives him options aplenty at the end of the month. It would take him sliding down the board, but if he does, they have enough ammo to pounce.
