Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks was not happy about the team’s decision to trade running back Mark Ingram this week and some have wondered if he’ll join Ingram as an ex-Texan before the trade deadline passes on Tuesday.

Cooks is a veteran with one year left on his deal, so he probably won’t be in Houston when the team starts to get better on the field and this week’s post-trade tweet isn’t the first time he’s expressed dissatisfaction with the team this season.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that teams have called about Cooks, but that the Texans are not expected to deal him in the next couple of days. An injury on Sunday could create a more pressing need at wideout for another team and lead to an offer that changes Houston’s mind.

Cooks has 45 catches for 502 yards and a touchdown this season.

  1. This guy has went from Drew Brees’ Saints to Tom Brady’s Patriots to the Super Bowl Rams and then landed in the dysfunctional version of the Texans. Talk about a whirlwind career. That’s a lot of movement for a player of his caliber.

  2. They were probably being low balled if they did not ship him out. They will probably revisit shipping him out in the offseason.

  3. Cooks would have beena great choice to wrap in with the Ingram deal to the saints,with such a glaring need for recievers. The only problem is the same which was why the saints ditched him in the first place and why he has been from team to team like a vagabond. He is a me first complainer,quick to make his disenchantment known from the locker room to head management. Texans will eventually drop him.

    Makes sense if they weren’t offered at least a 3rd round. He will not stick around for a long rebuild at the age of 30 after the 2022 season when he’s a UFA

  5. ” That’s a lot of movement for a player of his caliber.”

    He’s a good but not great player. When he gets hit by DBs or linebackers hard a couple times he gets alligator arms and is not as reliable as a top tier receiver. He’s an ok #2 but not a legitimate #1
