New England Patriots Make A Trade With The Saints For A Top Receiver

Finally the Brandin Cooks saga has come to an end as the New England Patriots have made a trade with the New Orleans Saints to land the wide out.

Cooks is 23 years old and will enter his fourth season in the NFL this upcoming season, as a receiver for Drew Brees he was able to real in 78 catches this past season for 8 touchdowns. The Saints were looking to move on from Cooks given that he was 3rd on their wide out depth chart.

The Saint moved him now because they were on the hook to pay him $781,599 roster bonus that was due on the 5th league day of the year which would be this upcoming Monday.

Amendola is on the roster right now and he has a base salary of $6 million owed to him next season, there is no way he comes into the season on the Patriots roster with that number. According to reports a couple of weeks ago Amendola was receptive to a restructure to remain with New England.

In terms of Cooks it was rumored earlier in the day that the Patriots could send Malcolm Butler down to New Orleans in exchange for the receiver. But instead the agreement was for draft picks, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter though it is still possible for the Patriots to send Malcolm to New Orleans in another trade in the near future.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
