He was drafted by the Jets in 2007 and played there until 2012, where he then played for the Buccaneers and Pats, before being drafted yet again by the Jets, where he played another two seasons. He ends his career playing with KC. He is a 7x Pro-Bowl and 4x All-Pro, as well as a Super Bowl Champion (XLIX). He retires with 497 tackles, 140 defended passes, and 29 interceptions.

Thursday Notes… -- Brandin Cooks signing a long-term deal with the Rams with $20.5 guaranteed is a bit of a discount. Corey Davis, by virtue of being a top 5 pick, is set for $25M guaranteed. Sammy Watkins got $40M in free agency, and he’s been a massive disappointment. Allen Robinson came off a torn ACL to get $18M from the Bears. Emmanuel Sanders got $20M guaranteed a few years ago. Jarvis Landry inexplicable got $34M from the Browns this year. Cooks essentially priced himself as a reasonable WR2. Why not wait to go to free agency and really leverage the market? I believe one of the main reasons why is the reason why the Rams will win the Super Bowl in the next 2-3 seasons (and I predict they will it this season). Cooks got a taste of what’s it’s like to be with the Rams, what it’s like to be around Sean McVay – and he didn’t fool around. He signed a deal that’s probably a little below what he could have landed in free agency…and did so on purpose. It shows the power of having the right head coach who can communicate to players like a normal human being and not in imbecilic curse words…and a guy who is light years ahead of all other coaches in the league with his offensive mind. McVay is the perfect coach, and better than Bill Belichick right now…and that’s not a slam at Belichick at all. McVay is the head coach for the new era…thus, look at all the players going to play for him and taking discounts to do so. Belichick a defensive genius, and amazing with retread players others overlooked. McVay the Jedi master of offense and the guy everyone wants to play with – the LeBron James of NFL head coaches. Cooks trading as the #2025 WR off current redraft boards…is…well, see our draft guide for our valuations. Read more at the website above!

UPDATE: According to reports, the Baltimore Ravens will pick up WR Breshad Perriman‘s $649,485 roster bonus that’s due on Saturday. Perriman will still have to battle for a roster spot this summer, as he’s not among the team’s top-three receivers entering training camp. However, it appears as though Baltimore is willing to at least give him one more shot at competing for a spot. A few months ago, the Ravens elected to decline Perriman’s fifth-year option for the 2019 season, which means he’s in a contract year. Perriman, 24, is a former first-round pick out of Central Florida by the Ravens in the 2015 NFL Draft. He is entering the final year of his four-year, $8.705 million rookie contract and is set to earn a base salary of $972K for the 2018 season. He missed his entire rookie season in 2015 due to a PCL injury. Perriman also missed time last year due to a concussion and was a healthy scratch for several games near the end of the season. In 2017, Perriman appeared in 11 games for the Ravens and recorded 10 receptions for 77 yards receiving and no touchdowns. #nfl#nflnews#nfllive#nflupdates#nflnow#nflnetwork#espn#espnnews#espnupdates#espnnow#sports#sportsnation#sport#active#fit#fitness#football#exercise#ball#gametime#workout#game#games#training#footballseason#news#breshadperriman#baltimoreravens
