@NFL_ATL: Titans are determined to keep Jared Cook from his 7 free-agent suitors, reports @RapSheet Jared Cook has suitors but Titans will fight to keep him - NFL.com
I don't think we can afford him. The difference between him to Walker or Keller isn't worth the difference in money
Top TE's may get $5-$6mil but it's still one of the lowest paid positions in the NFL and there are more guys making between $1-$3 mil than there are making $6 mil. I'm not even vaguely interested in Cook for that kind of money. As long as Cutler has Marshall and a good #2 catching 150 passes a year or more between them our need for a $6 mil TE is pretty low.
Jen's marrying her beau anyway. She's had her chances with me but now it's time to move on. Diane Lane just got a divorce so it's time to reset my sights. LOL
Jesus we go through this TE thing every year. It's like just because the guy down the street had a blue "Beemer" we have to have one too. Trestman has already down played the need for a top tier TE in his offense so why anyone thinks we'd pay one more than double what we paid Davis is beyond me.
We wouldn't even pay $3-$4 mil per year to keep Olsen around but we're gonna spend $6 mil or more on a FA like Cook? Nah, I just don't see it. Not this year.
Article by the Sun-times projecting interest in Cook, for the Bears, but not by the Bears.
If Cook is available, and it looks as if he will be.....we NEED him. He's the best available option at the TE position and truly is on the verge of exploding. Eifert would be nice in the draft, in my opinion anyway, but I'd just assume we scoop up Cook and use the 1st round pick Eifert would almost certainly cost us on the best offensive lineman available.
