Tom Brady reportedly not upset about Patriots trading Brandin Cooks

Tom Brady

The New England Patriots have already lost wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandin Cooks this offseason, which has left some wondering if Tom Brady will be upset about losing two productive targets. At least with the latter, Brady is apparently not losing any sleep.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported on Wednesday that the Patriots did not view Cooks as a great fit for their offense and Brady is not upset to see him traded to the Los Angeles Rams.

Cooks caught 65 passes for 1,082 yards and seven touchdowns last season, which sounds like a lot to replace. However, he had some big drops and there were several instances when he and Brady clearly were not on the same page. Typically, players who are not totally in sync with Brady do not last long in New England.

While there has been speculation that the Cooks trade could be a precursor to another big move the Patriots are planning to make, it sounds like the deal was more about getting value in return for a player they did not plan to keep beyond 2018.
