Summary

The New England Patriots sent a first-round pick and more to the New Orleans Saints for Cooks, so you can bet they have plans for him. Cooks is likely the best receiver Tom Brady has had since Randy Moss and while Brady can't go deep like Drew Brees can, he can still take advantage of Cooks' ability. Setting up outside, while Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski work the middle of the field will force defenses to choose their poison, and might result in Cooks in single coverage on a regular basis. Cooks should see no let up in terms of yards even with a weaker-armed quarterback and single coverage could also result in more touchdowns, perhaps with Cooks finally breaking into double-digits.
