    New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks was acquired last offseason for a first round pick and the Boston Herald reports the Patriots could extend Cooks this offseason. Cooks is due a $8.5 million option that the Patriots want to reduce with an extension. That could be difficult in a contract year, but Cooks is open to staying in New England. Cooks may be a candidate for the franchise tag if he plays 2018 without a new deal.
