How Patriots' acquisition of a another first-round pick could impact Bills

How Patriots' acquisition of a another first-round pick could impact Bills”

Cooks wound up spending just one season in New England, which acquired him from the Saints previous year for a first-round pick, 32nd overall, and a third-rounder, with the Patriots also getting a fourth-rounder.

According to ESPN, the Patriots attempted to re-sign Cooks before talks broke off, and the Rams now will continue those talks with the intent to sign Cooks to a long-term deal. The Rams will also try to retain players acquired in trades, as well as the young talent already on the roster. Later it was indicated that the Pats had traded their wide receiver, Brandin Cooks. But we do know wideout Brandin Cooks is on the Los Angeles Rams now. The New York Jets gave the Indianapolis Colts four picks in March to move up three spots in this year's draft. The 24-year-old played 92.7 percent of the Patriots' offensive snap in the regular season and his blistering speed will be sorely missed, but New England have plenty of options in the wide receiver role.

There's more fallout from the L.A. side of things, but for the Patriots this answers a couple of of questions, while raising at least one big question about the future of the quarterback position in New England.

Cooks led Patriots receivers in targets, receptions, yards, and touchdowns in his one season with the team, but he has just one year remaining on his current contract at a cap hit of almost $8.5 million, according to Over The Cap.

By trading away a first-round pick, the Rams don't have any picks until they're on the clock at No. 83 in the third round.

New England now possesses two first-round picks (23 and 31) and two second-round picks (34, 63) in the 2018 draft. It's pretty obvious that the tight end, while he may be interested in retiring sooner than later, mostly wants to get paid.

Tuesday's trade by the Los Angeles Rams has been yet another move made by the NFC team during their busy offseason. It had been assumed that they would draft a player, such as Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans, with their first pick. Not only that, but the Patriots would find themselves playing for another Super Bowl title-which he was knocked out of. The Patriots still have Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell as their top three receivers, with Kenny Britt, Cordarrelle Patterson and Phillip Dorsett providing depth. Cooks is scheduled to earn $8.459 million in 2018 and the Patriots trading him Tuesday now frees up some salary cap space for them this season.
