Apparently, the Browns and Texans have held several more rounds of trade talks since the Watson deal, with those talks involving the Browns’ interest in Cooks, according to Stainbrook.

Cooks is a former first-round pick who’s been something of a mate, one of those receivers who’s just good enough to be scheming — but not good enough to keep it if you can find the right trade package.
He spent the first four seasons with the New Orleans Saints after being selected with the 20th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. He then spent one season with Tom Brady and the New Orleans Patriots. England, followed by three years with the Los Angeles Chargers, then two with the Texans.
Overall, he has compiled 7,917 career yards and 46 career touchdowns, averaging 13.8 yards per catch.
