yeah, but being traded a lot doesn't invalidate a player, we see players all over the NFL; jalen Ramsey, Khalil Mack, Von Miller , Wagner, guys like that move around a lot but if you think about it at least somebody wanted them enough to go trade for them you got guys right now name DeAndre Hopkins and dalvin cook very good players guess what, no trade value.. why is that ? I'd be more concerned to wonder why no one would just give us seven for those guys... Remind me how many teams Deon Sanders played for search...Today on the NFL Network’s Good Morning Football show they had Devin McCourtney as a guest host on the show. His twin brother Jason McCourtney is a permanent host on the show). Devin is a really sharp guy BTW… it is no wonder Bill Belichick loved him in his defense and kept him in New England his whole career.
Anyway, since Devin is a longtime cornerback/safety in the league, they asked him to make a list of his top 5 under rated receivers. Guys that beat him a lot and consistently gave him a hard time when he was trying to cover them.
He listed Brandin Cooks as his second most under rated WR in the NFL. He said he is really good on the field - very fast - and very difficult to cover. He went on to say that Cooks is just as great in the locker room and is a fantastic team mate. He said that Gilmore loved Cooks in New England so he knows that Gilly is happy to have him on the same team again. McCourtney said as a guy that used to be in the locker room with Cooks, he has no idea why he’s been traded so much. He said that having him is guaranteed production and that he can run any route you want him to. He ended by saying great pickup for Dallas.
I just thought I’d put it in here. Cooks really was one hell of a pick up for Dallas. They got incredibly lucky to get him and Gilmore for a 5th each.
Here is McCourtey’s list for anyone who is wondering:
5. DJ Moore - Chicago
4. Tyler Lockett - Seattle
3. DeVonta Smith - Philadelphia
2. Brandin Cooks - Dallas
1. Amon-Ra St. Brown - Detroit
