The Houston Texans are in a position to punt on their season. Sitting at 1-5-1 and looking toward a full rebuild, they could be busy sellers at Tuesday's trade deadline. The most talked about name that could be dealt is wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

Cooks is the Texans best skill position player and a reliable and consistent speed-threat wideout. Cooks was asked about the trade rumors following Week 8 and had didn't have much to say on the topic, brushing the notion off to the side.

I’m not really talking about that right now.

Cooks chose to be in Houston. Yes, he was traded here, but he chose to re-up on a two-year extension this past offseason. He is also no stranger to getting traded. Cooks has been traded three times already, if he's dealt this season, he will tie the NFL record at four.

Cooks hauled in over 1,000 receiving yards last season and has 354 yards through seven games this season.

This is certainly a situation to monitor ahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. ET deadline, as a number of teams are reportedly interested in trading for Cooks if the price is right.
