The Dallas Cowboys obtained their man. Not the participant many followers is perhaps considering of, however they focused a large receiver and obtained him. Per ESPN, the Cowboys have acquired Brandin Cooks from the Houston Texans for a fifth and sixth-round draft decide. Not a steep worth in any respect for a receiver as soon as thought-about among the finest younger wideouts within the NFL.

That is one of the best Cowboys followers can hope for out of Jerry Jones throughout free company. Jones isn’t prepared to spend the cash it’d take to deliver a receiver the caliber of DeAndre Hopkins into the fold. Jones is in search of the cut price and will have discovered that with Cooks. Giving up late-round picks in 2023 and 2024 is a low-risk, high-reward transaction.

Hopkins has been campaigning for a commerce to Large D and even did an impromptu PSA with Dez Bryant expressing his want to be a Cowboy. Welp, that dream is all however shattered for now. Cooks has been on the commerce block for what seems like an eternity, and he’s lastly out of Houston. If he’s wholesome, Cooks ought to spherical among the finest triple threats at receiver within the league. Ceedee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Cooks will give defensive coordinators nightmares.

It doesn’t matter who’s lined up outdoors if Prescott can’t get the job completed. So, the Cooks pickup is good however not fairly the bang most followers hoped to see this offseason.
