(SportsRadio 610) - With Brandin Cooks' name swirled in trade rumors over the past several days, the Texans have agreed to terms on a two-year extension with their top wide receiver.

Multiple media outlets reported Thursday afternoon that Cooks and the Texans were in agreement on a new deal, with 2021 being the final year on his current contract. Cooks had been set to make $12.5 million this season.

Cooks just wrapped up back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons as the Texans' top receiver.

The Texans, with two first-round picks within the top 13 of this year's draft, could select a wide receiver, but it's unlikely they would find someone who would immediately match Cooks' production.

They could still use more talent at the position, as the options are limited after Cooks. The next-best receivers on the team are Nico Collins, Chris Conley and Chris Moore.
