Schultz reports along with the Eagles, the Cowboys, Packers, Jets, and Saints have called regarding Cooks.

NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports the Texans are "unlikely to trade Cooks at this time," but if they were to trade him they'd be looking for a second-round pick.

Pairing Brandin Cooks with DeVonta Smith would certainly give the Eagles a dynamic one-two punch for Jalen Hurts, to go along with tight end Dallas Goedert in the passing game. The addition of Cooks would quickly upgrade the Eagles' passing unit as a whole.

The Eagles, especially after their trade with the Saints, have a boat load of draft capital over the next three years.

Here is a look at Philadelphia's picks in the first three rounds in the upcoming drafts:

2022
No. 15
No. 18
2nd Round Pick
3rd Round Pick
3rd Round Pick (Saints)

2023
1st Round Pick
1st Round Pick (Saints)
2nd Round Pick
3rd Round Pick

2024
1st Round Pick
2nd Round Pick
2nd Round Pick (Saints)
3rd Round Pick

Cooks, 28, is a former 20th overall pick of the Saints in 2014. The 5'10" speedster has recorded over 1,000 yards receiving in each of his last two seasons and six of his eight NFL seasons overall. Cook averages 13.8 receiving yards per catch for his career and 9.1 yards per target.

Cooks is in the final year of his five year, $81 million contract set to carry a 2022 cap hit of $16.2 million.
