The bolded is the problem and exactly why we wanted Cook back.

And our offense got much better with a stretch TE


I would agree our offense is better when we have a TE who is a threat, but to what extent? Jared Cook signed a 5 year, $35.1M contract with the Rams when he left the Titans and put up a meager 142 receptions, 1786 receiving yards, and 8 TD receptions before being released. He's the exact guy you don't want to give large guarantees to especially for someone who didn't stay healthy last year, and has a history of questionable motivation.

So again, I'll ask. What is the most you'd be willing to invest into Jared Cook?

Someone please answer this one for me. A lot of people are anti-FA right...at least "first day" FA where the big players get signed for big money. Well, we just lost Sam Shields, our top CB on the team. No one can debate that. He was also making, what, about $10-11 million per year? Not sure of his cap number this year but wasn't it five figures? Moreover, assuming he had no concussion issues, the Packers would have kept Shields this year and paid him that salary.

So, if we lost our best CB, who we were willing to pay $10-11 million this year, why should it be unthinkable to go get a top FA corner like Gilmore, Ryan, Kirkpatrick, etc., guys who signed deals between $10-$14 million per year? This is what frustrates a lot of fans and why NE comes to mind. They lose Ryan, they get Gilmore. They lose Bennett, they get Allen. They lose Sheard, they get Ealy, etc.

On the other hand, we lose Shields and get.....


NE replaced Revis and Browner with a third round pick and an UDFA. Their fans freaked out too. Last season they won the SB with them.

If TT replaces any starter with a rookie or UDFA, he's crazy.


-Hogan
-Long
-Bennett
-McClennin

all signed/acquired be NE

So yes, they did lose CBs, but helped their young ones out by improving their front 7.


Actually they didn't improve their front 7, they dumped Jamie Collins and Chandler Jones
