Houston Texans trade WR Brandin Cooks to Dallas Cowboys and Twitter reacts
The Houston Texans managed to offload a player who didn’t want to be a part of the DeMeco Ryans era to a team looking for veteran contributors to complement a younger offensive core.
The Texans traded receiver Brandin Cooks to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round selection and a 2024 sixth-round pick.
General manager Nick Caserio is able to add more draft capital to complete the rebuild. Cooks, who didn’t want to be a part of another rebuild, gets to try his hand at winning a Super Bowl, a feat he wasn’t able to pull off in 2017 with the New England Patriots and 2018 with the Los Angeles Rams.
Here is a sampling of some of the best reactions from Twitter regarding the transaction.
LMAO. What happened to “we’re signing OBJ” “we’re trading for DHop” y’all had to settle for Brandin cooks

Traded Amari Cooper who is way better then Brandin Cooks… because of his 20M contract. You now trade for Brandin Cooks who is getting paid 18M. Common Cowboys L 😂😂😂😂

Real life football take: i don’t think this is needle moving.
Fantasy football take: Brandin Cooks will give you some of the best mid round upside of any WR near his ADP. Bro has been nothing but solid in HOU.

Cooks is about to hit 30yo in September. In his prime he was awesome.

I wish everyone, including Cooks, the best when they leave and go on with their lives, but let's just be honest… The Brandin Cooks thing was weird as hell. The fact his happiness was tied to Jack Easterby and he tried to spin it any other way is just weird as hell.
