Sean McVay has great reaction to question about Brandin Cooks trade

Sean McVay Rams

The Los Angeles Rams made one of the biggest trades of the offseason when they sent their first-round pick to the New England Patriots for Brandin Cooks, and it is clear Sean McVay doesn’t have a hint of buyer’s remorse over the deal.

On Tuesday, a reporter asked McVay how difficult it was to part with the No. 23 overall pick in the NFL Draft to acquire Cooks. The second-year coach had a great response.

McVay has a point. First-round picks hold a lot of value in football, but the odds of whiffing are pretty high. In Cooks, the Rams get a 24-year-old star receiver who has already proven he can succeed in two different passing offenses, posting three straight 1,000-yard seasons in New Orleans and New England. He has also averaged eight touchdown receptions over the past three years.

Teams are often hesitant to part with first-round picks for any position player other than a quarterback, but the Rams took a huge step forward on offense last season. Jared Goff has already shown his excitement with L.A. signing another key player, and you can bet he was even more thrilled that the Rams pulled the trigger on trading for Cooks.
