Brandin Cooks hasn't played a game yet for the Rams, but that hasn't stopped them from signing the receiver to a five-year contract extension.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The major motivation in trading for WR Brandin Cooks, and giving up a first-round pick in the process, was the Rams' confidence in being able to sign him to a long-term contract.
