Tom Brady wasn't against New England Patriots trading away Brandin Cooks

"It doesn't seem like the Patriots' way to accumulate all this draft capital and turn around and give it up for a wide receiver who is going to command $18-20 million [next season]". This time he will become a member of the revamped Los Angeles Rams.

Washington caught 39 touchdown passes and averaged 19.8 yards per catch over his four seasons in Stillwater, teaming up with fellow draft prospect Mason Rudolph to form one of the nation's most prolific quarterback-receiver duos.

New England will still have plenty of wide receivers to begin the year, even though slot man Danny Amendola has also moved on.

Rob Gronkowski reportedly will not be traded. But what may be most interesting about the acquisition of the No. 23 pick is how it better sets up New England to identify and draft a quarterback of the future. Wouldn't that be a gut punch for the rest of the AFC East if New England moved up to land a top quarterback prospect?

The Patriots now have the #23 overall pick, #31 overall pick, #43 overall pick and #63 overall pick.

Jurgen Klopp predicts fiery Champions League clash against Manchester City
Most of the times it is a outcome of what you have done. "Everyone needs to be giving 100 per cent and I think we do that". Many football fans resent their fabricated success and the long term damage to the Premier League adds to their annoyance.

The 24-year-old Cooks, who entered the National Football League as a first-round draft choice of the Saints in 2014, is the latest star acquisition for the Rams this offseason.

With that in mind, it makes flawless sense for New England to plan ahead and it secured two more draft picks by trading Cooks to L.A. The five-time Super Bowl winners now have picks number 23 and 31 in the first round, number 43 and 63 in the second round, a third-round pick and two-sixth rounders and a seventh-round pick. It also means the Rams won't continue talks about acquiring Odell Beckham Jr. from the Giants. Now in 2018, with Cooks due $8.5 million on the fifth-year option from his rookie deal, they now sit at 23 in the first round of 2018.

Cooks was one of Tom Brady's primary weapons this past season, serving as the vertical threat in New England's offence.

Cooks will play a similar role to Watkins, stretching the field vertically to free up the likes of Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Todd Gurley. Loading up on big-name players doesn't guarantee another NFC West title for the Rams, but they clearly have the division's most talented roster. The Rams now have zero picks in the first two rounds and their first selection will now come at pick 87 of the third round.
