Texans Sign Wide Receiver To Extension

Although trade rumors surrounding Brandin Cooks were rising, they now have come to a complete and utter halt. This is because the veteran receiver has now signed a two-year extension with the Houston Texans. 

Although Houston is currently embarking on a rebuild, it has become clear that they are still hoping to keep some of their players around. Now with this Cooks extension, they will be going into these next few years with the 28-year-old. 

Cooks just completed his second season with Houston in 2021. In 16 games, he recorded six touchdowns, 1,037 yards, and a career-high 90 receptions. It will be intriguing to see how much he is able to build on these totals with this sweet new extension.

Although the Texans are certainly happy to extend Cooks, other teams looking for help at the WR position definitely are not too thrilled with this development. Cooks was one of the biggest receivers on the market, but now, he is officially off it.
