The Texans will send a second-round draft pick to the Rams in exchange for Cooks and a future pick, sources said.
The Rams acquired Cooks and a fourth-round pick from the New England Patriots before the 2018 draft in exchange for a first-round pick. The Rams then signed Cooks to a five-year, $81 million contract before the season.
In two seasons with the Rams, Cooks caught 122 passes for 1,787 yards and seven touchdowns.
In 2018, Cooks played a pivotal role in a Rams offense that powered the team to Super Bowl LIII. Cooks caught 80 passes for 1,204 yards and five touchdowns.
However, last season Cooks’ production declined as he experienced a drop in targets and was sidelined for two game because of reoccurring concussions. Cooks caught 42 passes for 583 yards and two touchdowns.
The New Orleans Saints selected Cooks with the 20th overall pick in the 2014 draft. He played three seasons for the Saints before he was traded to the Patriots, where he played for one season before the Rams acquired him.
