On Thursday ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported the Eagles and Titans were interested in making a trade for New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks. While no real compensation was mentioned for the Eagles, the Titans were reported to be the frontrunners to land Cooks, using the No. 18 overall pick to entice the Saints.
However today things might have changed.
When asked what it would take to land Cooks, Sirius XM NFL radio's Alex Marvez reports it would "probably" only take a second-round pick to acquire Cooks from the Saints.
The Sports Bash on Thursday, 973ESPN.com Eagles insider John McMullen says he would give up the Eagles first-round pick for Cooks.
"I'd do it and not even blink," McMullen said.
"There are so many question marks with the top three receivers who might be there in this draft, they all have issues. You have a proven, productive player who is still very young."
One challenge for a team that would acquire Cooks, he is still under his rookie deal, making him very cost friendly for the 2017 season. However, this time next year, Cooks will be looking for a massive contract extension.
"You would think a trade would come with a renegotiation and a extension," McMullen added.
