New England is sending the 32nd, and 103rd overall draft picks to New Orleans, but the Pats are also getting a fourth rounder in addition to Cooks.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the teams are still talking Butler for a separate deal, however.

215 of 316 passes thrown his way for 2,861 yards and 20 scores, 17 of which have come over the past two seasons.

Looking ahead to the 2017 season, Cooks should fit in nicely to the Pats receiving corps, working as another down the field receiver alongside Chris Hogan, with Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola underneath and Malcolm Mitchell capable of playing both roles.

The moves marks another huge win for Belichick the GM in a surprising offseason that has seen the team make more splashy moves that usual.
