Cooks extension runs through '24 and he apparently still wants out. Is he tradable? Can we get a three? A two? What should we settle for?
I can see a trade like this happening.

Pick 2-33 and Cooks for a WR needy team in the 20's.

Probably an edge player or DT.

Depends on who the new HC is. I could see Gannon wanting a big NT like Davis.

I could see Cooks and one of the Texans RD3 picks getting them back into RD2 or Cooks returning a solid RD3 or RD4 pick depending on how the contract money gets worked out.

I suspect Cooks will be getting about Amari Cooper level draft compensation unfortunately. His value would have been higher at deadline when teams are trying to make an in-season run and dealing with injuries. But offseason they have draft and FA to acquire a player without his age/contract/general baggage.

The Cooper return was so small because the Browns ate the rest of Cooper's contract. $20 million in 2022 & another $20 million in 2023. No team is going to take all $18 million of Cooks deal. The Texans will have to eat a big chunk of that. But, they should get the equivalent of a 3rd round pick in return. Browns, Chiefs, Cowboys, and Giants should be in the mix.
