2. Trade for Brandin Cooks.
Cooks has battled injuries throughout his career and is anything but a sure thing at this point. The veteran receiver’s numbers and impact took a significant dip in the 2019 season, but there’s reason to think he has a good chance to bounce back in 2020.
The Rams offense took a step backward in 2019 from its 2018 production, with Cooks seeing a direct hit from that stagnation. The speedy receiver totaled only 583 yards and two touchdowns on 42 receptions. But diving deeper into Cooks’ career numbers, last year looks to be the outlier.
Prior to 2019, Cooks accumulated four straight 1,000 yard seasons, with his best yardage production coming in the 2018 season. Cooks has always had a reputation as someone who can stretch the field, and he’s only a year removed from that impressive campaign. Also, at 26 years old he’s still relatively young for a guy with six seasons under his belt.
The Rams phased Cooks out of their offense last year, with the emergence of Cooper Kupp in the slot. Philadelphia should look to acquire Cooks for a late-round pick in the draft, setting up the potential for a bounce-back campaign in midnight green.
