Former New Orleans Saints receiver Brandin Cooks is now a New England Patriot.
Now that he's made the full transition as part of a blockbuster trade that sent the Saints the No. 32 pick and the No. 103 pick for Cooks and the No. 118 pick in April's draft, Cooks found time to say goodbye.
The former first-round pick posted a statement on his Instagram Tuesday morning.
To the Fans of New Orleans and the organization. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to play there. Coaches thank you for always pushing me to be the best I can be. Fans you guys have been nothing but great to me and I couldn't be more thankful! To the guys in the locker room your support never went unnoticed. My love for you all is deep. Blessings🏹 #thearcher #shootyourarrows
