Brandin Cooks ends trade speculation with new Texans contract

Brandin Cooks after a catch

Brandin Cooks has been the subject of offseason trade rumors, but the Houston Texans wide receiver is staying right where he is.

Cooks agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Texans on Thursday, according to reports. The two-year deal is worth roughly $20 million.

Few players are committing their futures to Houston right now, but Cooks is clearly comfortable there. He easily led the Texans with 1,037 receiving yards last season, putting together a fine campaign despite Houston’s struggles in all departments.

Plenty of teams recognized Cooks’ value to the Texans, and he has reportedly been the subject of trade inquiries. Houston clearly thinks enough of him to keep him around, and he will be a huge part of the offense again in 2022.
