Chris Mortenson of ESPN.com has reported that a potential scenario for a Brandin Cooks trade to the Titans would involve the Titans sending the fifth overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft to the Saints in exchange for Cooks and the eleventh overall pick. If the Saints receive a first-round pick high enough, sources said, they would be willing to send back a mid-round pick.
The report stated the Eagles and Tennessee Titans are two interested suitors for Cooks, and that the Titans are the more likely of the two.
"We want to be bigger at the receiver position, but you would be insane if you looked at Brandin Cooks and said we're not going to take him because he's 5-9", Kelly said then. One step at reaching that goal is to acquire a top notch wide receiver like the New Orleans Saints' Brandin Cooks. The Titans also have an emerging offense, led by quarterback Marcus Mariota, and 61 million in cap room. He has over 1,100 yards in each of the past two seasons.
"I wouldn't say he is on the trading block, but we are always listening". He's one of the NFL's biggest deep threats, and he recorded a second straight season with at least 1,100 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. He would be under contract this season, with an option for 2018, said to be around 8.5 million. This could be bad news for Saints fans who have enjoyed watching the Brees-Cooks connection during his first three National Football League seasons.

Lawmaker Mohammad Javad Abtahi told ICANA on Sunday that the draft resolution is "politically-motivated" and part of efforts to prolong the dispute.
Teams cannot officially make trades until the new league year begins March 9 at 4 p.m., but it seems like the Saints could strike a deal this week. Until the roster is complete, the Patriots will keep making calls to teams with #1 receivers to see if they are on the market.
As it turns out, Saints star receiver Brandin Cooks may soon be on the move. "If they would acquire a receiver through a trade like Cooks, I still think they would want size on the other side".
The Eagles have the 14th overall pick, and the Titans hold the 18th pick.
The Eagles have been linked to several wide receivers during the offseason, including Jackson, Cooks, Pierre Garcon, Alshon Jeffery and Kenny Stills. It's the second consecutive season Cooks has produced over 1,000 yards. If Jon Robinson feels forced to take a receiver with one of his two first round picks, it greatly limits his options on draft day.
