The Los Angeles Rams have agreed to a five-year extension
with wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

The Rams traded their first- and sixth-round picks in the 2018 draft to the
New England Patriots for Cooks and a fourth-round pick earlier this year.

Cooks will replace Sammy Watkins James

, who left for Kansas City in free agency, and provide
a deep threat for quarterback Jared Goff and the Rams, who had the NFL’s
highest-scoring offense last season.

Cooks was entering the final season of his contract and is happy to be
staying in Los Angeles for the next several years.

”I just knew this was a place that I want to be for a really long time,” he
said. ”As far as the years and all of that Taylor

, I just let them handle that, my agent handle that,
and just knowing I wanted to be here for a really long time.

”They took care of that in the way they thought was best and we agreed with
it. Other than that I’m just excited to get Game One in, let alone
years Gale

, so that’s what I’m focused on now.”

Before joining the Rams, Cooks played in 58 regular-season games with 46
starts, and had at least 1,000 yards receiving in each of the past three
seasons.

The fifth-year pro has 280 receptions for 3 Aaron

,943 yards and 27 touchdowns, and averages 14.1 yards
per reception. He had nine 100-plus yard receiving games in 2016 with the New
Orleans Saints.

”Brandin Cooks has shown himself to be a class act on and off the field since
the first day he joined our team,” Rams coach Sean McVay said in a statement.
”He’s a proven professional in this league, and signing him to a long-term
contract was always our goal. We’re excited to keep Brandin in a Rams uniform
through 2023.”

Tavon Austin is restructuring his contract to remain with the Los Angeles
Rams.

The Rams worked out a deal with Austin on Thursday to keep the high-priced
veteran receiver on their roster.

Austin got a four-year Sylvester
Williams Jersey
, $42 million deal with Los Angeles before the 2016
season, and he reached career highs with 58 catches for 509 yards. But after
Austin caught just 13 passes for the Rams last season, the team explored a trade
or a buyout.

Coach Sean McVay frequently used the speedy former No. 8 overall pick as a
ball-carrier instead of a receiver for the NFC West champions. Austin rushed 59
times for 270 yards last season.

Austin has spent five seasons with the Rams.
