New England Patriots trade WR Brandin Cooks to LA Rams

Brandin Cooks is headed from New England to Los Angeles

Let's ask and answer them.

Trading away Cooks leaves a pretty big hole at wide receiver.

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 previous year. With another pick at No. 31 overall, the Patriots are in good shape to find Tom Brady's eventual replacement.

ESPN also reports that the Rams are now out on the Beckham pursuit. Additionally, Rapoport suggests that there were some issues with Cooks' fit in the Patriots' offensive system.

"You saw some of these wide receiver deals come in", Schefter told WEEI. The Patriots aren't scared of personalities; Lord knows they had plenty of success with Randy Moss back in 2007.

Rob Gronkowski missed two games to injury, but once again had one of the best seasons of any National Football League tight end.

Unlikely! In fact, borderline impossible. Secondly, Bill Belichick now owns two first and two second picks in 2018 with which to either load up on young talent, or potentially use as collateral to pull off a blockbuster deal for a bonafide star.

Now, the Patriots will likely look to replace Cooks either with a rookie in the draft or a veteran in free agency. Instead, it has more to do with getting value for a player who New England may not have wanted to pay a premium for. Waiting this long to make the trade kept the team from pursuing a number of the top free agent receivers.

Yes. And this is the spicy part of all this. The New York Jets gave the Indianapolis Colts four picks in March to move up three spots in this year's draft. It had been assumed that they would draft a player, such as Alabama linebacker Rashaan Evans, with their first pick. The Patriots will receive the Rams' first- and sixth-round draft picks.

Brady's job just got a little harder in 2018 at a time when there's still some question about how much he's enjoying the job at all. "It would surprise me a little bit", Schefter said on "Get Up!".

If rumors are to be believed, the Patriots have a real interest in UCLA QB Josh Rosen. The franchise tag was too prohibitive and Belichick couldn't keep him around because he would be too expensive and the timeline for Brady's career became too cloudy.

Each of the three quarterbacks features different playing styles, so it is hard to determine if the team is favoring any one of the three yet. The Patriots need to be ready for it, while also being ready to compete in 2018.
