The Los Angeles Rams are heading into the upcoming NFL offseason with the need to make some moves. After missing the playoffs in 2019 following a Super Bowl run the year before, Sean McCoy and company cannot be happy.

According to a report from Michael Silver of Sports Illustrated, the Rams could be looking to trade veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks this offseason.

Cooks would be an intriguing trade target for quite a few different teams this offseason. There are many franchises that could use a boost at the wide receiver position. The Rams could be looking to clear some cap space with this move.

During the 2019 season with the Rams, Cooks ended up playing in 14 games. He caught 42 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns. Those numbers were a bit low, but he still has the potential to be an elite weapon for a team.

Los Angeles seems happy with Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp at the wide receiver position. Kupp deserves an even bigger role with the production that he showed last season for the Rams. Trading Cooks would make sense to help that happen.

It will be interesting to see what the market ends up being for Cooks on the trade market. He has been traded twice already and a move would not be anything unexpected for him.

Rumors will start coming out fast and furious over the next few days. Cooks could end up being moved and we should hear more about that in the near future.
