“My heart isn’t there. I don’t look at being part of a rebuild, however that looks. That’s why I trust my camp and my delegation to be able to see a map from here to there. What it looks like to be part of something that has a reliable plan,” he said. he told reporters in January, adding, “I’m not going into the offseason thinking I want to be part of a rebuild.”
Cooks led the Texans with 57 catches for 699 yards in 13 games during the 2022 season. He also had three touchdown catches. He signed a contract extension before the 2022 season, but Houston only managed three wins in 2022 and has the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft.
