Rams sign WR Brandin Cooks to five-year extension

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Los Angeles Rams have signed Brandin Cooks to a five-year contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth $80 million, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

"Brandin Cooks has shown himself to be a class act on and off the field since the first day he joined our team," HC Sean McVay said in a statement. "He's a proven professional in this league and signing him to a long-term contract was always our goal."

Fantasy Impact:

Acquired in an offseason trade with the New England Patriots, Cooks, 24, has yet to play a snap for the Rams, but coach Sean McVay liked what he saw from the receiver throughout the offseason program. Cooks said he knew he wanted to sign a long-term contract shortly after arriving at the team's training facility and observing the culture established by McVay, the story said.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Brandin Cooks caught 7-of-9 passes for 159 yards in the Rams’ Week 2 win over the Cardinals. As great of a day as it was from a yardage standpoint, it could have been a bigger game for Cooks had Jared Goff not underthrown a potential touchdown pass (Cooks had to work back to the ball instead of catching it in stride). It’s clear through two weeks that Sean McVay and Goff will get Cooks more involved than they did former deep threat Sammy Watkins. Ranked as our No. 15 WR for the Rams’ matchup with the Chargers this Sunday, consider Cooks a solid WR2 option.
