NEW ORLEANS, LA (WLOX) -

ESPN was the first to report that the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots completed a deal Friday night sending wide receiver Brandin Cooks and a fourth-round draft pick (118th overall) to the Patriots in exchange for New England's first-round draft pick (32nd overall) and a third-round draft pick (103rd overall).

Cooks piled up a 1,000 yards receiving for the second straight season.  He was the Saints No. 1 draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.  In three seasons he made 215 catches for 2,861 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Saints and Patriots could still make a trade centering on New England cornerback Malcolm Butler.
