Tennessee Titans Favored to Trade for Brandin Cooks

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks is likely on the move. Here are the favorites to trade for him.

 

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks finished last season with 78 receptions and eight touchdowns. Still, he was unhappy with his role and wasn't even targeted in a 49-21 win at the Superdome against the Rams.

Now that the Giants have reportedly agreed to a deal with Brandon Marshall, Cooks becomes a hot commodity.

NFL reporter Alex Marvez said the Saints likely would trade Cooks for a second-round pick, while other outlets have said it'll take a first-rounder. The Saints owe Cooks a $781,000 roster bonus on Monday.

Plenty of teams are lining up for the 23-year-old wideout, who will be entering his fourth year in the league. And according to BookMaker.eu, Cooks is just 15/2 to stay in the Big Easy, meaning we'll likely see him elsewhere next season.

Here's who's favored to land him, according to the market-setting offshore sportsbook.

TENNESSEE TITANS: -150 (bet $150 to win $100)

The Titans are the early favorites for Cooks and have two picks in the first round at Nos. 5 and 18 overall. Tennessee could ship the 18th pick to New Orleans for Cooks and draft for need at No. 5. Rishard Matthews led the Titans with nine TDs last year.

These odds might be too high. The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported the Patriots offered the last pick in the first round for Cooks, but were turned down. The Patriots have been linked to a number of free agents, including RB Adrian Peterson.
