New England Patriots Make a Pair of Trades: Acquire Wide Reciever Brandin Cooks and Defensive End Kony Ealy

The New England Patriots are wheeling and dealing today with a pair of big trades. 

The New England Patriots have made a pair of big trades today.

Just minutes ago, it has been reported that the Patriots have made a package deal to acquire New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks. The New England Patriots reportedly sent their 1st round pick and a 3rd round pick to snag the speedster.

Cooks has been excellent since being drafted in 2014. Posting 550 yards and 7 touchdowns as a rookie, he has since gone on to post over a 1,000 yards each of the past two seasons and 9 touchdowns in 2015 and 8 touchdowns in 2016.

As far as it has been reported, Malcolm Butler is also still a New England Patriot and HAS NOT been included in the trade.

The other trade that happened earlier in the day was for Carolina Panthers defensive end, Kony Ealy.

The Patriots made a smart move here as the traded their 2nd round pick (pick 64 overall) for Ealy and Carolina’s 3rd round pick (pick 72 overall) which means the Patriots only dropped down 8 spots to get a very solid young defender. Some might remember Ealy or his performance in Super Bowl 50. He recorded 3 sacks on Peyton Manning that night. Ealy is 6’5 and 270, which adds some size to the edge of the defensive line. Just imagine Ealy, Trey Flowers, and Rob Ninkovich all getting after the quarterback. Belichick is making some big moves today.
