Rams send uber talented but douchy Watkins on his way and signs less talented Brandin Cooks to 5 years 80 million. 

 

 "Brandin Cooks has shown himself to be a class act on and off the field since the first day he joined our team," Rams coach Sean McVay said in a statement. "He's a proven professional in this league and signing him to a long-term contract was always our goal. We're excited to keep Brandin in a Rams uniform through 2023."

 

If that isn't a shot at Watkins I don't know what is. See that all you Watkins fanboys? Talent isn't everything and not being a dick matters too. But let me guess, McD and McVay are wrong and you all are right. BWAAA HAAHAA

Can he ever be as good of a decoy as Sammy though? Can anyone?

Sammy was even sooooo good that Goff didnt see him

I find it interesting that a team with a young QB and an offensive genius as HC thinks it's important to go after top notch WR talent whereas we run with KB, Kerley,  and maybe Zay and then who knows after that ...

Because they used a standard cliche press release about re-signing a player? Grasping for straws there, doncha think?

Yeah, there's really no other way to look at it.

Because the organization spent a starting corner and a third round pick for a player they let go 16 games later and then signed a similar on field player for 80 million dollars claiming he is a "class act" and a "true professional" without playing a down. No straws grasped.

No, there's really no other way to look at it.  They gave Cooks the same exact deal that Sammy got from the Chefs.

Cooks is a much better receiver than Watkins. 

One is a decoy. The other has puts up 1,100 yard seasons with ease.

This has been beaten to death. If you need to see how McVay feels about Cooks just go back and read his quotes right after the trade.

I get what you are saying but I think if you pay real close attention the MCBeany team is building this thing long term.  In other words, you don't go sign a big name very good but not great free agent when your team still needs a proven QB and a lot more talent to compete.  They are freeing up cap space while building/adding talent so when we are much closer to competing for a SB, then they can make those key free agent signings.

Their is no such thing as the salary cap, you can spend and push that money back and back and back and back. Their are just cheap owners.

The true measure of Cook's success this year will be the amount of passes Robert Woods and Cooper Crupp make.

Are you insinuating that El Pegula is a cheap owner?
