Another offseason means another change of employer for former Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

The New England Patriots have traded him to the Los Angeles Rams, according to reports Tuesday afternoon.

Adam Schefter of ESPN said the Patriots are sending Cooks and a fourth-round draft pick to the Rams in exchange for the 23rd overall pick and a sixth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.


The Saints traded Cooks, a former New Orleans first round pick, to New England last offseason for the final selection (No. 32 overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft first round. New Orleans selected offensive tackle Ryan Ramcyck with the pick.
