Cooper Kupp hilariously explains Brandin Cooks’ cryptic tweet
NFL players sometimes use social media to send messages about their current mindset. They can signal that they’re unhappy with their current team, and maybe even want a trade.
That’s what Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks seemed to be doing Friday afternoon, when he posted a tweet that simply read “free me.”

Naturally, that gained some notice, with many believing that Cooks was signaling his desire to leave the Rams. Not the case, according to teammate Cooper Kupp, who shared the real reason for the tweet.
From quarantine. (Just to clarify) https://t.co/H56T44Q3tJ

Kupp may well not know any better than the rest of us if Cooks’ tweet has any added meaning. It sounds like Cooks may be available for trade whether he wants it or not, and maybe he’s heard that and wants to speed the process alone. Or maybe he’s just quarantined. You be the judge.
