The Dallas Cowboys have a brand new wide receiver, having brought aboard Brandin Cooks from the Houston Texans in exchange for draft picks. The move came not long after the Cowboys made the call to part ways with running back Ezekiel Elliott, so naturally, more offensive help was needed.
And quarterback Dak Prescott is loving having him as a teammate so far in their short time together.
“When you’re just throwing to him, it stands out,” Prescott said of Cooks. "His speed is different than many others. The way he approaches the game, his knowledge, he’s already helping CeeDee, helping the young guys, playing cornerback, teaching them little nuances of the route running. He’s going to be huge for me and huge for the room.”
Not long after the acquisition of Cooks, the Cowboys would restructure his contract, which allows them an additional few million dollars in cap space in the salary cap.
Cooks has amassed 630 career receptions, 8,616 receiving yards and 49 total touchdowns in his career so far. What kind of stats will he rack up in his first season deep in the heart of Texas with the Cowboys?
