BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Brandin Cooks only spent one season in New England, but it was successful. The receiver had 65 catches, topped 1,000 yards, and hauled in seven touchdowns last year.
Unfortunately, that stop ended short of a Super Bowl victory, but it was a good time on the whole.
"Everything about it was great," Cooks said. "We all had a special time. We won games, blessed to play in the Super Bowl, learned from some great coaches and great players. There's not one negative thing I can say coming out of there."

As fate would have it, an offseason trade to the Rams landed Cooks right back in the Big Game to face his old team.
"It's special," he said. "First of all, being back in California in my home state, being closer to my family, it just seems like everything was just coming together. Blessed that coach McVay and Bill Belichick was able to come to an agreement to get me here. Wouldn't trade it for the world."
Cooks had another strong season, with 80 catches, 12-hundred yards, and six scores.
Now the Pats have to worry about containing him.
