News: Brandin Cooks signs $80 extension; Goff/Gurley to benefit?

Smitty’s Take: The Rams have signed WR Brandin Cooks to a five-year, $80 million extension through 2023. This is a grip of money, which means they believe in the guy and will toss him the rock in 2018. Some consider that Rams offense limited through the air, but I think it will improve in 2018, along with Jared Goff. Clearly the rushing game is on fire, led by Todd Gurley, but that success on the ground should continue in 2018, with Cooks stretching the field. Cooks will make everyone better in that offense, as defenses will have to focus on him a ton. The Rams are going to have a big year in 2018, and Cooks, despite moving teams (which is not always great for WRs), should be set for 80+ receptions, 1,100+ yards and 7-9TDs.
