Former Saints WR Brandin Cooks traded from Patriots to Rams

Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots will receive the No. 23 overall pick and a sixth-round pick in the 2018 National Football League draft from the Rams for Cooks.

This gives New England two first rounders entering the draft. Cooks racked up 1,082 yards and eight touchdowns last season, trailing only tight end Rob Gronkowski in those categories.

This move essentially eliminates the rumors of an Odell Beckham to the Rams trade. Patriots owner Robert Kraft is well aware of that fact and even admitted last week that New England should "obviously" look to draft a QB. A year ago, the team traded away the No. 32 pick and a third-round selection to the Saints for Cooks. The Saints received the No. 32 overall pick and a third-round pick while sending Cooks and a fourth-round pick.

The Patriots are trading Cooks to the Los Angeles Rams, according to an ESPN report.

By keeping Cooks, the Patriots likely would've been looking at a lucrative contract extension or the franchise tag. However, with only one year left on his deal, the Patriots are moving on while adding a first-round choice to their arsenal of draft capital. La Canfora has reported that the Patriots won't be in the market for the Giants receiver. Along with No. 23 overall, they also have the No. 31, No. 43 and No. 63 picks.

Why did the Rams make this trade?

Earlier in the offseason, the Rams made trades to acquire Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, and the team signed Ndamukong Suh in free agency. Now the offense will get a little spice after losing Sammy Watkins.

The Los Angeles Rams aren't being shy about acquiring talent this offseason. Kenny Britt in 2016 is the only Los Angeles receiver with more than 1,000 yards in a season since 2008.

When you consider that Watkins is making twice as much in average salary (or close to it) as Cooks, this looks like a really good deal for the Rams at first glance.

Now, 13 months later, Cooks is on the move again.
