Chicago Bears Rumors: Team Interested in TE Jared Cook
With the franchise tag now in the rear-view mirror, the NFL free agency picture is getting a little clearer every day. Jared Cook was one player that didn’t get the tag, which surprised many across the league. The young talented tight end will be hitting the open market in a few days, and will obviously generate interest from many teams.
According to many reports across the web, the Chicago Bears will be one of those teams. To this I say – why not? Why wouldn’t the Bears try to lure Cook to the Windy City? Sure, he’s coming off of a season-ending shoulder injury, but he’s still only 25, with a ton of upside. A torn rotator cuff is not going to scare any team, including Chicago, away from making him an offer.
Cook’s career season came in 2011 when he caught 49 passes for 759 yards, with three touchdowns. Not crazy numbers, but a 15.5 per catch average is pretty impressive, especially playing for the Tennessee Titans. Just by having a top-tier quarterback in Jay Cutler throwing him the ball, Cook would figure to improve on that alone.
For a franchise that’s trying to somewhat reinvent itself offensively, a speedy tight end like Cook would be a perfect addition. He’s a play-maker, something that Kellen Davis just isn’t. Davis is a different type of tight end, and would no doubt still have a place on the roster if Cook ended up signing a deal. Cook would just flat out make the team better.
Of course, the Titans are said to being doing everything they can to re-up Cook to a long-term deal, but if the Bears come knocking, I bet Cook will listen closely to the offer.
