The Houston Texans are listening to trade inquiries involving wide receiver Brandin Cooks, ESPN reported Sunday.

Per the report, the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings and even one of Cooks’ former teams, the Los Angeles Rams, are potential landing spots for the wideout.

The NFL trade deadline is Tuesday.

Money is a possible snag to any deal involving Cooks, however. He is due $18 million fully guaranteed next season.

Cooks, 29, has 28 catches for 281 yards and a touchdown this season in six games this season.

He has 601 receptions for 8,198 yards and 47 scores in 125 career games with the New Orleans Saints (2014-16), New England Patriots (2017), Rams (2018-19) and Texans. He was selected by the Saints with the 20th overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.
