Should the Chicago Bears Pursue Tennessee Titans TE Jared Cook?
In the first half of the 2012 season, the Chicago Bears appeared to be on their way to having one of the best records in the NFC, but a second-half collapse left them falling just short of the playoffs with a 10-6 record. While numerous changes were made on the coaching staff during the offseason, there is one player they may consider bringing on board for the 2013 season to give them another option for Jay Cutler to throw to on offense–Jared Cook of the Tennessee Titans.
After the Titans decided to go against placing their tight end with the franchise tag, Cook is scheduled to test the open market and see what other teams have to offer, but it may be difficult for him to find a team willing to pay him the type of money he wants. One of the main reasons why Tennessee and Cook failed to reach an agreement was because he believed he was worthy of receiving the franchise tag as a wide receiver–but that’s far from the case.
It would be one thing if Cook put up similar numbers to Rob Gronkowski or Jimmy Graham, but the fact that he only caught 44 passes last year for 523 yards and four touchdowns is enough proof that he may not be worth as much money as he thinks he deserves. As long as Cook doesn’t ask for a ridiculous amount of money, there’s no reason why Chicago shouldn’t at least consider bringing him on board for the 2013 season–so it should be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
