Due to the Rams not having much draft capital in the next couple seasons, they may dangle Woods or Kupp to a wide receiver hungry team like the Patriots. While Robert Woods is actually the name that has been rumored in the past when it comes to New England, Cooper Kupp would be ideal.
A young, rising star who is great in the slot with supreme route-running skills catching the ball from Tom Brady?
Not only have we seen that story before with Wes Welker, but Julian Edelman has excelled in that role within the New England Patriots offense. Coming off a season in which he hauled in 94 receptions for 1,161 yards, Cooper Kupp is not only the ultimate Edelman replacement, he would be in the center of the Patriots offense for years to come, even beyond Tom Brady’s playing days.
It seems unbelievable that the Rams would even entertain the thought, but they could have no other choice and that’s where the New England Patriots could capitalize.
A 2020 first round pick could get it done if Bill Belichick feels it’s worth taking a shot at a young player with one-year left on his rookie deal. But, he did that before with Brandin Cooks, who he ironically traded to the Rams for a first-round pick.
