New Orleans Saints receiver Brandin Cooks said he wanted to buy his mother Andrea “new everything” in a shopping spree back home in California this off-season. He did not let her down. His mother already had a new car after Cooks was drafted in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft by the Saints. He bought her a new house after his rookie season.
Cooks posted the spree on his social media accounts:
“It’s just one of those things that’s indescribable for me to be able to keep that promise,” Cooks said Friday in a radio interview on the Jim Rome Show. “It’s special just to see the smile on her face, the happiness in her eyes — how stress-free and more confident she is.
“She feels more comfortable. That’s all I wanted to do. That makes me happy, and honestly that makes me want to work even harder because I’m just scratching the surface right now.”
