New England Patriots land WR Brandin Cooks in trade

The announcement comes after rumors the Saints were actively shopping the standout wide receiver this offseason.

"As great as today is, in all honesty, we're five weeks behind 30 teams in the league in preparing for the 2017 season", he said the morning after the game at Tom Brady's Super Bowl MVP news conference at George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

Cooks, 23, posted 78 receptions for a team-high 1,173 yards and eight touchdowns.

Although adding Jenkins plus two draft picks would seem like a quick way to upgrade the defense, it's possible that the Saints didn't want to see Cooks go to an NFC rival. The Patriots are still thinking like winners even though they had already had a massive amount of success. If Butler does re-sign with the Patriots, however, it does make a formidable 1-2 punch at the cornerback position.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The Patriots also got a sixth-round choice in return.

Yesterday to no one's surprise the Redskins fired general manager Scot McCloughlan.

When the Republican health care cuts come, women are likely to have to deal with the consequences in their daily lives. The bill would also end the requirement for individuals to have insurance, as well as most Obamacare-levied taxes.

The Saints have re-signed defensive tackle Nick Fairley and unrestricted free agent linebacker A.J. Klein since the start of free agency, and are expected to use their newly acquired draft picks on defensive players. Players aren't allowed to be traded if they aren't under contract.

"With longer arms and a powerful playing style, Guy projects as a rotational player who will also be part of the team's field goal block team, where he showed up for the Ravens in September".

The Saints know that with Bress entering the season at 37-years old and one year left on his contract, this may be his last season in the Big Easy. Ginn still is fast, but he doesn't have the blazing speed anymore that made him a top ten pick in the 2007 draft.

New Orleans was 27 in total defense in 2016, including last in passing yards allowed. He will pocket a settlement of a shade more than $900,000 in base salary, or roughly one third of his anticipated earnings over the next two seasons.

New Orleans still has work to do but replacing Cooks won't be one of the team's needs. The move adds $5.5 million to the Ravens' salary cap.

Cornerback Logan Ryan is reportedly leaving for the Titans, getting $30 million over three years. Munnerlyn began his career in Carolina, playing for the Panthers from 2009-2013.
