The New Orleans Saints are considering a trade of Brandin Cooks with the Tennessee Titans and Philadelphia Eagles involved in talks.

The Titans are considered the more likely suitor, per one source, but two other sources have conflicting opinions on which team is considered the favorite to acquire Cooks if the Saints trade him. 

The Titans own the 18th overall pick and could deal that selection straight up for Cooks.

Sean Payton has shot down reports that Cooks could emerge in trade talks -- calling them "garbage" late last season and recently telling SiriusXM Radio that he "absolutely" anticipates Cooks will remain a Saint this year.

Cooks expressed frustration about his role last season. Cooks felt he was being used too often as a clear-out receiver.
