The Houston Texans have agreed to terms on a two-year extension with Cooks through the 2024 season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday. Rapoport added Friday that the deal is worth $39.6 million with $36 million in guarantees.
Drafted 20th overall in 2014 by the New Orleans Saints, Cooks has played for the Saints, New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams and Texans, and been traded three times in his career. For now at least, Cooks is not being traded for a fourth time despite the Texans receiving interest for him.
It’s a substantial signing for the Texans as the 28-year-old is the most notable name and easily one of the best players on a talent-starved Houston roster.
WR Brandin Cooks has agreed to a new two-year extension with the Texans, per source.
