The Rams continue to make moves in the offseason, while a new contender for a quarterback has emerged.

The Arizona Cardinals could have two issues that have arisen from a single trade. The Los Angeles Rams have traded for New England Patriots wide receiver Brandin Cooks:

This is a good move for the Rams who need a weapon on the outside and who can take the top off a defense. It also allows them to focus on the building they continue to do with proven players.

However, more of a concern now may be the ammo the New England Patriots possess, as they are loaded with prime draft picks to make a move up if they fancy themselves a quarterback this year:

That means on, top of the teams at the beginning of the draft, the Cardinals now must contend with teams like the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and if they choose to, the New England Patriots.

It could be a punch to the gut in two ways if Cooks recaptures some of his magic and the Patriots draft a quarterback.
