Reports: Texans restructure contract of WR Brandin Cooks

The Houston Texans agreed to a restructured contract with wide receiver Brandin Cooks that will free up $6.5 million against the cap, NFL Network first reported Thursday.

The team converted $10 million of Cooks’ base salary ($12 million) to a signing bonus, adding $1 million to his contract over the next two seasons, per the report. The move also voids the final year of the deal which Cooks signed when he was with the Los Angeles Rams, making him a free agent after the 2022 season.

Cooks had 81 receptions for 1,150 yards last season, his fifth time topping 1,000 yards. He hauled in six touchdowns in 2020, his first season in Houston after the team acquired him in a trade with the Rams.

Houston is Cooks’ fourth team since he was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 2014. He also played one season in New England (2017). He has 40 career touchdowns.
