The Philadelphia Eagles are in trade discussions with the New Orleans Saints about wide receiver Brandin Cooks, according to ESPN.
The Patriots offered the No. 32 overall pick as part of their package for Cooks. The Saints are telling teams they want a first-round pick in exchange for the 5-foot-10, 189-pound pass-catcher, sources informed of the situation told Rapoport.
Trading Brandon Graham to the Saints will give New Orleans just what they desire, an elite pass-rusher.
The Titans and Eagles have been mentioned as potential landing spots for Cooks in a trade. There had been prior National Football League trade rumors about the Saints looking to deal Cooks, but it may come as a surprise to some fans that Bill Belichick has already made an official offer to give Tom Brady another weapon.
"But we are always listening", said Payton.
Although Payton shot down reports of a possible Cooks trade in recent months, the idea started to gain momentum a year ago, when Cooks expressed his frustration with his role in New Orleans' offense after he had zero targets in a 49-21 rout of the Los Angeles Rams, including the memorable line, "Closed mouths don't get fed".
Fed's Yellen signals higher chance of March rate hike
The Federal Open Market Committee, the group that decides when interest rates will move, next meets from March 14 to 15. And New York Fed Chief William Dudley said the case for a rate increase has become "a lot more compelling".
The Eagles also want to find a receiver in an attempt to upgrade assets around quarterback Carson Wentz, the team's top pick in 2016. Yet just two players, Julian Edelman and Martellus Bennett, finished with over 700 receiving yards.
Which is why I don't think there's a scenario where the Saints trade Cooks. Cooks is heading into the final year of his rookie contract at the bargain rate of $1.56 million. Cooks would immediately be the best receiver on either team. Until the roster is complete, the Patriots will keep making calls to teams with #1 receivers to see if they are on the market. In other words, this wasn't a one-for-one swap, which is ostensibly the Saints asking price.
It's a busy day in the neighborhood for Eagles wide receiver discussions, and it's only getting louder. It's the second consecutive season Cooks has produced over 1,000 yards.

Yesterday I was good with them giving up the 18th pick to get Cooks. A few teams are eyeing trades involving high draft picks and proven players. Could the Saints pull off a Brandin Cooks trade and select two elite defensive players with first-round picks? To note, four other receivers from Cooks' draft class are likely see big-time dollars whenever their contracts are extended.
