NESN:It didn’t take Brandin Cooks long to become enamored with the New England Patriots. Just 10 games into his Patriots tenure, the wide receiver already hopes to spend the rest of his playing days in Foxboro. “The goal is to play the rest of my career here,” Cooks told CBSSports.com this week. “That’s God willing. I don’t know what the future holds, but this is a special place.” Of course, anything a player says about his future has to be taken with a grain of salt. Cooks, after all, is just 24, meaning his career should span another decade if he remains healthy.
The Patriots train will never stop it seems, Tom Brady takes pay cuts to get players, players fake injuries to leave teams and come to New England, and every current player has no second thoughts whatsoever. That’s what happens when you play with the ageless wonder, and obvious MVP of the NFL, Tom Brady. While being coached by the best coach that has ever picked up a clipboard in Bill Belichick. On the flipside, Receivers usually don’t have long stays in New England – Cooks has 45 catches for 786 yards this season along with 4 TD’s. I hope Cooks has a long tenure in New England, I can’t imagine how lethal the Patriots receiving core would be with Edelman, Gronk, Cooks, Mitchell, Hogan, and now Bennett. Gronk and Cooks have played the most and Brady has 22 TD’s to 2 INT’s, it’s incredible.
