Brandin Cooks has been dealt from the Los Angeles Rams to the Houston Texans on Thursday, according to multiple reports.
According to ESPN, the Texans will send a second-round pick and an undetermined future pick to the Rams.
The 26-year-old receiver had 42 catches for 583 yards and a pair of touchdowns last season with the Rams his second with Los Angeles.
Cooks has put up good numbers over the course of his career — 402 total receptions for 5,730 yards and 34 touchdowns in six seasons — but has recently been dogged by concussion issues. He missed two contests last year with recurring concussions, and as a Patriot, he was knocked out Super Bowl LII with a concussion.
It will be Cooks’s third team in the last four years and the fourth team of his career; he previously played for the Saints, Patriots, and Rams. New England dealt Cooks to Los Angeles before the 2018 draft for a first-round pick, and the Rams subsequently signed him to a five-year, $81 million contract before the season.
