Pro Bowl Player
Well, right now Cooks is making nothing. So big win there. Next year he is on the books for a 8.5 mil cap hit. Jones's cap hit is 14 mil and Brown's is almost 14 mil and it will be 19 mil in a couple of years.
So you can continue to make excuses why Cooks isnt elite like these guys but he also isnt being paid anywhere near these guys.
All things equal it looks like Cooks will be worth the 8.5 next year given he will have a full year and camp in the system. That is pretty good for a 1000 yard plus guy with elite speed, who gets the system and is a great teammate
Whats the problem?
None for this and next year. I am speaking of years after those
