DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys offseason has been a major success thus far, trading for two franchise-changing talents in cornerback Stephon Gilmore, and most recently, wideout Brandin Cooks.

And after three dismal years wit the Houston Texans, Cooks met with the Dallas media for the first time on Monday, expressing how eager he is to get started for America's team.
“I couldn’t be hungrier," Cooks said. "When you have those 3 years under your belt, that’s definitely fueling the fire and hunger to help my team win. I can’t wait. I truly can’t.”
Cooks himself, was not dismal for the Texans, or any other of the previous four teams he has played for before the Cowboys.
Far from it in fact.
Heading into 2022 Cooks had gone for over 1,000 yards receiving in six of the previous seven seasons. He has also gone for over 1,000 yards in six of his nine seasons in the league.
It was not until 2022, when his quarterback was the soon to be replaced Davis Mills, that his production took a meaningful dip, catching 57 passes for just 699 yards and three touchdowns last season.
But with the veteran now joining the likes of CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup - and forming one of the NFL's top receiver corps in the process - Cooks believes he can become an even better player than he was before.
“I think it’s a great fit," Cooks said. "I’m going to push (the other WRs) and they’re going to push me. … I'm just looking forward to getting started.”
