At least five teams have reached out to the Saints about acquiring Cooks, including the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles, according to The Saints want a first-round pick in return for Cooks, whom they selected with the No. 20 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Titans have two first-round picks thanks to their trade last draft with the Los Angeles Rams, who traded up to No. 1 to select Jared Goff. The Titans have the No. 5 and No. 18 picks in this year’s draft.

The Saints have the No. 11 pick in the first-round. Cooks is entering the final year of his rookie deal, and he will likely command a massive contract next offseason.
