Patriots, Eagles, and Titans offers: Which Brandin Cooks trade would you make?

New, comments

The Saints ultimately decided to go with the Patriots offer. Which choice would you have made?

The New England Patriots were able to acquire WR Brandin Cooks from the New Orleans Saints in exchange for a few high draft picks. The Philadelphia Eagles were also in the running, offering a starting caliber defensive back, while the Tennessee Titans were interested in doing a pick swap, per Pro Football Talk.

We now have the reported trade offers from each of these three competing teams. Which offer would you have taken?

Titans Offer

Titans Give: First Round Pick (#5), Third Round Pick (#83 or #100)
Saints Give: WR Brandin Cooks, First Round Pick (#11)

Eagles Offer

Eagles Give: DB Malcolm Jenkins, Third Round Pick (#74), Fourth Round Pick (#119 or #139)
Saints Give: WR Brandin Cooks

Patriots Offer

Patriots Give: First Round Pick (#32), Third Round Pick (#103)
Saints Give: WR Brandin Cooks, Fourth Round Pick (#118)

The Saints rejected the Eagles offer because they wanted a second rounder instead of the two later picks, according to PFT, and perhaps they wanted an additional first round pick in this deep defensive draft, instead of swapping for a better first round pick.

If you were the Saints, which trade would you have accepted?
