In an expected move, WR Brandin Cooks traded to New England Patriots for its 32nd (first round) and 103rd (third round) draft picks. New Orleans Saints traded Cooks as well as their 118th (fourth round pick). Cooks’ value in the trade is the equivalent of a 30th overall pick.
These draft moves are expected to help the Saints build its defense through the draft. A trade for CB Malcolm Butler is not completely out of the picture.
Sterling Moore still remains a free agent.
The free agency moves made by the Saints and the additional, high draft selections could carve out a scenario whereby the Saints move up for a player they really like. The holes filled in free agency gives them freedom to reach for a player they covet.
