The catch, which was reminiscent of New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr.’s grab from 2014, was one of seven from Cooks on the day.
Tom Brady and Brandin Cooks connected seven times today. It was Cooks' best practice of camp.

Following practice, tight end Rob Gronkowski said that his teammate’s superb performance shouldn’t come as a shock.
“He’s a great player, great dude, and he works super hard,” Gronk told reporters. “Not surprised at all to see him making plays like that [when] you see how hard the kid works.”
