Brandin Cooks appears to be VERY upset at his team for trading away Mark Ingram … saying “this is bulls***” just minutes after the Texans agreed to jettison the running back.
Houston is sending Ingram to the New Orleans Saints for draft picks, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero … and shortly after the news broke, Cooks took to Twitter to presumably sound off on his org.
“This is bulls***,” the star wide receiver said. “Such a joke.”
While it’s certainly possible Cooks was referring to something completely different than the trade — it seems safe to assume the guy is definitively mad at Houston brass for the move.
Ingram hasn’t exactly been tearing it up this season … but the Texans have now traded away or cut multiple key veterans in the past few weeks — and Cooks is no doubt upset about it, given Houston is 1-6 this season and doesn’t look to be trying to improve its roster.
Cooks, though, might not have to put up with the head-scratching, money-saving decisions much longer … he, too, is reportedly on the trading block.
Deadline to deal players is next week … Godspeed, Brandin.
