The Texans are packing it in on the 2021 season and building for the future, and veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks appears unhappy about that.
Moments after news broke that the Texans are trading veteran running back Mark Ingram to the Saints, Cooks went on Twitter and voiced what appeared to be his displeasure.
“This is bulls–t. Such a joke,” Cooks tweeted.
It’s fair to wonder whether Cooks will be the next to go. He’s the Texans’ leading receiver this season, with 45 catches for 502 yards, so he has shown that he still has enough left that he could help a contending team. And his base salary this season is only $2.5 million, so he’d be affordable for a team acquiring him, which would only have to pay a prorated portion of that salary.
Cooks is a name to watch before the trade deadline.
