The Los Angeles Rams have begun their training camp festivities this week. Above all, they are focused on making another Super Bowl run in 2019. In his second season, Brandin Cooks is turning some heads—including Sean McVay’s.

While speaking to the media, Sean McVay says Brandin Cooks has been “outstanding” early in training camp. Cooks is entering his second season with the Rams after being traded to the team before the 2018 season.

“He’s been great. He’s the epitome of being a pro. You talk about a guy who is detail oriented, locked in, loves the game, takes his preparation seriously and then he has the talent to match it. He’s been outstanding and really, he looks strong, he’s taken really good care of himself. The challenge for us is continuing to get him that work and see if we can maintain that strength and feeling as fresh as he does throughout the season. That’s a great challenge but when he is feeling like he is right now and he’s doing those little things the right way, he’s one of the premier players in this league. We’re glad he’s on our team.”

In 2018, Cooks was a vital piece to McVay’s offense with his ability to stretch the field. Alongside Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, Los Angeles has one of the best receiving corps in the NFL.

To kick off his career with the Rams, Cooks had 80 receptions for 1,204 yards and five touchdowns. Cooks became the first receiver in NFL history to get over 1,000 yards in three straight seasons with three different teams.

Last year, Cooks was part of a special Rams offense that was able to make the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Cooks and the Rams fell to his former team in the New England Patriots.

Heading into 2019, Cooks is focused on helping the Rams make another run at the Lombardi trophy. With Jared Goff entering his fourth season in the NFL, expect another productive season from Cooks.
