Personally I think it was a dumb decision by both teams.
Brandin Cooks better than Sammy Watkins?

Yeah, how could someone the same age, with 88 more catches, 891 more yards, 2 more TDs and more playoff experience in 4 fewer starts possibly be considered better?

Cooks had Brees and Brady.

Watkins had Manuel Orton and Co..


Pretty sure Cooks stats would drop if he had **** at QB.

Hard to compare WRs based on stats when the QB discrepancy is high.

While true most of the time, Watkins was on the number 1 offense in the league last season...and was incredibly mediocre. Are Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp THAT much better than him?

I dont know what Woods and Kupp Target numbers were but Watkins targets were pretty low. Iím not saying Watkins is some great WR, just that itís hard to base stats when the QBs differ so much. Coming off a bad foot with a screw floating around in it takes some time too. What impressed me was that he grew up in 2017. Iíd take Cooks attitude and approach over Watkins but hes finally growing up.

Cooks has been consistently better, that's why St Louis switched them out. Watkins has been a career disappointment, which is too bad because he was a bad ass in college. His career catch% is 55.7, that is not good. It's worse than Dwayne Bowe and Jeremy Macklin, the last 2 KC WR we were supposed to be so afraid of.

Both WRs are being ridiculously over paid based on past performance.
Both were bad asses in college.
Both have similar stat lines in the pros.
One has had a significant foot injury.

I would bet on Cooks having a better stat line this year than Watkins.

Former Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday.

I thought he retired last year the way he played for da Queefs.
